Went twice in 3 days. Would have another knuckle if I were one more day in Dusseldorf. Generous portion, authentic. You see the load of meats cooking away. Even the simple pork bun (schweine brotchen) was to die for. Very tasty, juicy, big chunks of meat. Skin and all considered, they were not at all greasy. This is a casual... More

Had the pork meat over here. If you like fat with your meat it must be OK. Side potatos and bean salad were average at the maximum. I don't understand the high rating of this restaurant on tripadvisor, but maybe its because I'm not german. And no problem that the personell joined me eating at my table, but she could... More

Very reasonable prices and so was the food, not bad but nor was it very interesting. Service was good though, very quick and friendly! Typical German food, if you are on a diet you should probably consider another restaurant.

Very simple place with a couple of traditional, delicious dishes. Probably the best schweinsaxe I ever ate. Service is quick and prices are cheap.

Small, buzy but cozy. Gentlemen's plate can easily be divided between two persons if not that hungry. Delicious!

It's one of the most famous food establishments in Duss. Tiny little place and always packed, Get your roast pork rolls with crackling to die for!

It's very small, so most of the time you have to wait. The pigslegs (schweinehaxe) is very good. Little salty and the skin is prepared very crispy. Also try the dark beer with cola!

I have been in nicer Pork Knuckle Restaurants, but this place serves hands down the best pork knuckle in Germany...that we have discovered. The place is not fancy...and right in front by the door is a huge gas fired rotisserie with about 50 pork knuckles cooking on it. You order it...its sliced off fresh and served. The price for what...
