Delicious pork knuckles dishes, served hot, reasonable price. But the area around NRW is famous for pork knuckles. So there are quite a few of similar place you could get.

I’m a frequent customer of Schweine Janes ever since I came to Düsseldorf, 8 years ago. I brought some friends over to get to know the best Haxe of Düsseldorf. Unfortunately I was surprised by a lot of negative changes that apparently are since they...have a new owner/administration. The waiters are very impolite and informed us that we couldn’t share a plate an everyone should order one plate (my pregnant wife didn’t want to eat…). Furthermore the waiter showed a camera that was watching us. Once the plates came, it had nothing to do with the old flavor. The Haxe was hard and the crust was soft. As a summary, RUN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. If you want a good German food I recommend going to Fuchschen, for an exampleMore

I have been here a couple of times about 8-10 years ago and couldn’t wait for my husband to try their pork knuckle! We got there with a stroller so my husband went inside to ask if there was room, but there was not so...I said let’s just sit outside.. not knowing how rude the lady was to him inside.. so the lady comes outside and takes our order- we wanted to split a dish because it was 3pm and we weren’t that hungry.. wasn’t allowed and she wouldn’t serve us if we didn’t each get a drink and a dish. We almost ordered but she was so rude that we just left, went to the place across the street and there we both had a dish and a drink.. out of principle we didn’t have it there.. get your act together lady. I see multiple reviews here..More

One of my favourite places to go. Very affordable and just over delicious! German pork knuckle at it’s finest But also loads of other options, I never got to those though. It’s better to go there when it’s cool outside because when it’s hot it’s...really hot inside. Respect to the hard workers behind the grill.More

What can I say, this place came recommended to us so we were excited to try it after days of very bland food elsewhere. The evening got off to a bad start after ordering drinks from the quite rude waitress, almost 5 euros for soft...drinks which is outrageous, the lemonade arrived and was obviously from a bottle that had gone flat, the waitress wasn't having any of it, wouldn't replace and kept insisting it had bubbles whilst pointing at the solitary bubble desperately clinging to life at the bottom of the very flat lemonade. The food came, nicely presented, looked impressive and it was OK, you can't go wrong really with buying meat from a butcher and cooking it on a rotisserie? The 'roast' potatoes were warmed up and rubbery though. All in all, I can't recommend, it's a tourist trap with some of the worse service I've had in a restaurant setting worldwide.More

Ok food marred by poor service. Served a small glass of lemonade (€4.80) which was flat, I asked for it to be replaced and was told by the waitress it couldn’t be replaced! Not sure I’ve ever encountered such brazen disregard for customers. Then sat...through my meal as the people on the next table chain smoked through a load of cigarettes. In this day and age smoking shouldn’t be allowed on a restaurant terrace. Not somewhere I’d recommend to eat!More

Waitress was rude and unwelcoming. We just had our dinner and we wanted to drink a beer and share 1 main course given that the serving in Germany is huge. Waitress insisted that we each order one main + 1 drink or get lost. I...think we have much better choices just down the street. Don't botherMore
