The catfish was crispy and the pinto beans were flavorful. The hush puppies were moist and perky! I had a nice visit with a neighboring couple who said it was always great food. Reasonably priced too!

People anywhere near Conroe know about this place! It's where you bring visitors, family or friends. Everything is consistently good and fresh. Buster is very meticulous in running a tight ship. The wait staff are all awesome and most are long time employees. Fried catfish, best chicken fried steak, and you have to try the Good Pie! Famous and one... More

My wife and I ate at Vernon's on a recent visit to Montgomery/Conroe. We had eaten here many years ago while living in College Station. It was just as good as we remembered. The fried catfish is the best in the country! I had grilled shrimp that was very good.

We don't get out this way too often, but we like to eat at Vernon's when we get a chance. The portions are huge: a small fried catfish place is more than most people can finish. The fish is very well done: not over or under cooked. Be sure and try the hush puppies and the green tomato relish. The... More

Sometimes you have a wait but it's worth it. Great catfish, shrimp, oysters as well as sides. Love the fried pickles. The service is always exceptional, the food always consistent.

A group of 11 had a Sunday dinner here. The server was efficient and kept the iced tea glasses filled. I had the chicken fried steak with white gravy, green beans, and mashed potatoes. It was a little over done, but still had good flavor. The beans had a bit of bacon. My husband had the grilled chicken breast. He... More

Best southern food I've ever had. I would go there all the time if I could, and it's not too pricey.

We came back twice and bought food to take home! Good service, really great cat fish and the hush puppies were fantastic. We all had different desserts and they were fantastic. I'm visiting family in this area, I'm from Oklahoma and this will be a favorite place for all of us in the future. No wonder it's always packed!!!

Got the porkchops others the catfish all good was great. Server seemed to have too many tables as we struggled to get drink refills but the lunch deal for under 10 was well worth it
