I saw the posting in trip advisor prior to stumbling across the restaurant. It is all the rave. If your in town, don't miss this local treat.

Just a few tables on the street where you see the fire on the spit turns your eisbein. And beer. The eisbein was perfect - soft but deep fried to a crisp.

good friendly restaurant with both boiled and roasted pork knuckles. A lot of people like to have the roasted pork with a bun as a lighter alternative. Limited seating in open air during warmer weather provides a chance to see lots of people pass by and sometimes even a few performers too.

Great little place to get your pork fix. The schweinenhaxe was pretty good and I am sure the braten was. Decent price to try a local dish with an Alt Beer. Super nice people and cool cooking system.

If you ever ate a reasonably good Haxn, you will come to the conclusion that you have made a really bad choice. Disgusting consistence and taste.

This place constantly delivers delicious German style pork based products. You cannot beat the Schweinebrotchen here either eaten in the restaurant or walking in the street. small inside but with a giant reputation. I have been eating here since 1987

We decided to eat at Schweine Janes while in Altstadt after seeing the delicious pork cooking through the window. The pork was tender and juicy on the inside with a nice, crunchy skin. We also tried the goulash which was serviced with mash potatoes and also delicious. The restaurant is a bit small on the inside but quite cozy.
