Great, great Frankish food. Huge portions. The pork shoulder was excellent, but enough for three. The usual enormous potato dumplings and the server brought extra sauce without us asking. An excellent value as well. Small doorway a few blocks from the tram, check the street numbers or you could miss it. Make reservations. We went on a Tuesday and they... More

We arrived at this neighborhood restaurant and it was full. As we turned to leave, a server called us back and opened up the other dining area in the lower level for us. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Definitely recommended!

My son and I had a large and a small slow roast pork shoulder with a beer and apple juice for less than 25 Euros. Was very tasty - only negative was that the service was a little... More

Needless to say, one does not end up there to eat fish! Slow roast pork shoulder IS their specialty and it is perfectly executed. Crackling very crispy, meat still juicy and not too dry, runny but thick enough sauce.... A delight. Among us had four different versions of it including one in a salad as well as three plates of...

A very nice place to try local specialituies. The choice is not very wide because it specialises in local dishes, but what you get is delicious. Definitely worth a visit. You may need to book a table in advance on Friday night.

Wonderful lunch, a pork specialty place. The pork shoulder and potatoes are excellent! Schnitzel also very good, and good beer. Casual environment.

The best Schaufele you could have in Nürnberg! Really Wonderful, soft, tasty, good price and good Service. Not close to the city centre, not touristic.. The best!

A simply furnished restaurant in the southern city. But the pork Schaeufele (part of shoulder) is unique, flavorful and crispy; it's a dream. The dumplings and red cabbage are also not to be despised. We will come again.

They have an international menu, good pork dishes, and good beer all for a decent price. I would recommend if you like pork.
