A Dusseldorf Institution!

Because of the high scores on TA we thought we'd have lunch here. Place was mobbed, however, staff found us a table in a few minutes. Beer was OK. Food was pretty average. I had a curry wurst with some chips as a gesture of solidarity with my German friends. Glad I went, but it's an experience I won't be... More

But great freshly cooked food served with pride. Restaurant is a little cramped but be prepared to meet other Diners as you are often sharing a table when really busy. Great value with quality.

Others might not agree with me but this is the best schweinehaxe in Düsseldorf. Just walking into the place makes my mouth water. There's nothing on the menu I would discourage anyone from eating. I just haven't been often enough to Schweine Janes and I have all the intention of correcting that! Even in winter you can sit outside without... More

Into pork? Must go and grab a bread roll with pork at this place! It's the perfect snack to start your night in the town. Will also do as a snack between pubs! There are other places offering a similar snack but this is the best place to go to.

Low price shop ideal to have a meal and a break of shopping or walk in the old town of Dusseldorf. Friendly and quick service.

This place only does the usual germanic fare of bratwurst, pork cuts and sauerkraut but it does it extremely well... the pork is cooked over a slow fire and is so succulent, it melts in your mouth!

Excellent grill restaurant that mainly serves pork. There is limited space inside, but most people prefer to sit on the wooden benches outside. You share them with other guests which adds to the relaxed atmosphere. All the food i tried was excellent and very friendly priced. Just relax, take a half liter of Erdinger and enjoy !

We were a bit in a hurry and wanted a quick meal. We read positive reviews here on Tripadvisor so we decided to eat here. We had the Wiener Art schnitzel and a beer and a wine. Prices on the menu on the website are not correct. The schnitzel was 10.90 instead of 8,50. Of course it's still pretty cheap.... More

Every visit we take to Dusseldorf must include this Dusseldorf legend. Simple, effective German food with, as the name suggests, mainly grilled meat (pork especially.) All options are classic German and all taste superb. Thee is a huge choice of great German food from all the many grills in the Altstadt (Oldtown) but this stands head and shoulders above the...
