I have made 3 visits to 8Bit across Footscray and CBD and on my first visit I was impressed, I could see what all the fuss was about and was happy I drove 45-60 minutes to give this place a try.
On visit number 2 it was a different story, the patties had a weird flavour I didn’t get the wow factor I received the first time I went and visit 3 made me decide they are on the ‘only if everything is shut’ list.
Consistency is a big player and the main reason why 8Bit are no longer in my top burger places to visit, it really is a hit and miss with 8bit, when they are good – they are outstanding. When they are not, they are quite average and I have had 2/3 bad experiences.
With Burger Business now open in Footscray, they would be my burger of choice in the area. In the CBD, there are a lot more options walking distance.
One thing they have been consistent with is the chili cheese fries and potato gems, they would be my main visit back to 8bit.
