We had a bratwurst and a currywurst with two glasses of apple juice. The food was cheaper than plenty of others in the old town and the atmosphere was very decent. The waitress was cheerful and the two guys behind the counter looked to be enjoying themselves too. I'd go again.

Holiday for all senses. First stop after airport - without any thinking :). Simple enough but perfect. Pork Knuckle is a killer and it changes the game. Highly recommended for all travelers.

If you want simple honest food cooked well then this place is just perfect. Nothing fancy or pretentious. Limited choice, small beer selection but who cares? Delicious pork knuckle, fried potatoes and a salad for 12.50 euros. Just found my go to place when visiting Düsseldorf.

Roasted Pork Knuckle with crackling is 10/10. Huge portion, includes sides for only 12.50. Beer is fairly priced, service is friendly and fun. Crowd rowdy but all happy and welcoming. Wait for us not as long for as some had.....seated in ten minutes. Skip the schnitzels though, not their strong suit.

Restaurant is located in the center of the city. Small,cozy and very casual restaurant where locals go and dine. Must try the pork knuckle, house specialty.
