The first part is prononuced more like "fox", not "fu-ks". As someone who never learned German, I first thought it was the latter. The locals might forgive you the first time, but you're sure to learn the right way to say it before you leave. Anyhow, another altbrauerei.
The interior is a little dark and somewhat cozy. You can see behind the bar a big barrel of beer being tapped and filled into tiny glasses. While alt is the staple (€1.80 for 250 ml), there is also a wheat ale available in bottles. I drank like a local and stuck with alt, and it was very good. Expect your altbier in Dusseldorf fashion, right on your table as soon as the waiter sees an empty glass until you signal them to stop. Having already been to Uerige, I wasn't in the food for food, but if you were interested, it offers simple beer snacks to full fledged meals.
Fun little merchandise is available for purchase, in particular postcards of the fox in different poses.
It isn't quite in the same realm as Uerige, but on its own, "the fox" is a visit well made.

The slim selection of beers is the only thing that keeps this place from being ideal.
Great location, great food, amazing staff and historical.
Very affordable food that is of high quality expected in Germany. Everybody who ate or drank or worked here has been awesome every time I have visited.
As far as I can recall, there is only 1 beer to try here (Alt) but there are tons of spirits and wines.
Get the cheese sample plate if you are just stopping in for a ,25l or two, you will not be disappointed.

I hit this place up for some after-dinner beers with 2 colleagues from the UK. It was a good call (mine), as it turned out this was one of my favorite alt biers. Somewhat harder to get to than a few other alt pubs in the Altstadt, just a short walk north. It felt like a slightly more quiet part of the town.
The layout is less old-world than the others, not quite the feeling of a beer hall, more a restaurant. But the beer is served in the correct manner, a waiter passes with a circular tray filled with 0.3L glasses of the beer and replaces yours as they become empty, leaving a hash mark on your coaster to indicate how many to pay for at the end.
I didn't try the food, and didn't really look at food that others ordered so I can't speak to that. But the alt is hoppier than usual and was just what I wanted.

Very nice place located north of the the Altstadt. Nice location with street parking available.
Interior is very old school with the wood and stuffed game.
The beer here is altbier only and very good (see review of beer).
The food is also very well prepared and enormous portions. My wife had the baked potato and salad which she said was good and I had the pork knuckle (highly recommended) with pan fried potatoes and sauerkraut.
The food was well priced at usually under 15 Euros per plate.
Service is excellent, helpful and polite. English menus are available.
This is my favorite place in Dusseldorf and I would go here again.

Located on the busy Ratingerstrasse from the Sclosser Alt outlet.
We visited in on a summer weekend of 09/07/2010
Most drinkers being outside enjoying the warmth in the evening so we ending up having a look inside where there was plenty of seating.
Its in a traditional brewpub style with terracotta floor tiles, white tiled walls and dark wood seating, pine tables.
Kobes are friendly and efficient asking if you want another glass when finishing your current one, and recommending what to eat from the menu.
Albeit we didnt eat here, the menu was traditional rheinland fare. From what we saw, food looked and smelled very tasty!
Of course they only sell their own altbier but when its that delicious, i wouldnt want to drink anything else! Quality of the beer freshness was excellent but it was going down a storm.
I cant quite remember but i remember thinking this was one of the more expensive alts, but only by 5 cents so im not complaining!
One of my favourites when in Dusseldorf!

Just got back from Dusseldorf. This place was recomended by hotel clerk as a place that they would go.
The seven of us took a taxi to the restruant. It is in olde town and struck me as a place that, if I lived there, I would go to once a month. Atmosphere and food were traditional German. No complaints food and beverage were very good. The waitstaff joined us in drink throughout the evening and were always there with the next round. Food was slower in appearing, but was a secondary thought of the evening.
Give it a try if you are in the area. Much more memorable than any meal that we had in restruant row in the fashion district.
