“Pork heaven”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

This is Germany's version of fast food. The entrance is dominated by row on row of Pork shoulders on a spit. The style is basic but the taste is fantastic. Our group really enjoyed pork knuckle and schwein brotchen. It's not fancy but the people are efficient, polite and attentive. Sit outside on a warm evening, watch the world go by and drink alt beer. Who needs more?

“Pork glorious pork”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Excellent pork either roast, BBQ'd or steamed, (there's chicken if you prefer). Small restaurant, loads of atmosphere. Right in the centre of the Old Town. The whole place is buzzing. Not to be missed when in Dusseldorf. After on the next block there's a bar that sells 'Killepitsch' the unique Dusseldorf liqueur, a bigger kick than Jagermeister.

“FOODIES - GREAT STREET FOOD”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

My Fiance and I travel the world looking for good food. We had read reviews and wanted to check this out after seeing pics. WE WERE NOT DISSAPOINTED.
Great value for money. You will leave feeling well fed, and we ate outside, there were flies outside trying to get on the tables and people but that was because it was a really hot day. We would definately go here again, and we would recommend this place to anyone who knows about good food. Service and presentation was excellent. Food was a little fatty (we cut off the fatty rinds) and, big portions though :)

Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

All of the brilliant reviews here are true! Food is amazing, great prices and the staff are all lovely! We went twice during our trip because the food was so good! They have an English menu if you need it but they're happy to help you choose.... Great atmosphere ... A real must visit!

“Truly German”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

If you want to taste real german food (specially bbq type) then you need to visit this place. Try the Weizen Bier and Schweinehalk.
The only mediocre thing is the quality of the service
