Description: We tried Vernon's Barbecue after being very pleased with Vernon's Kuntry Katfish. It was also a great place. They have kind of a mix and match menu with great barbecued brisket, sausage, turkey and ribs. their coleslaw is delicious as are the assortment of southern favorites, fried onions, peppers, hush puppies and stuffed potatoes. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table when it is ready. A casual and friendly place with great food for a very reasonable price. It should be on your list of suggestions for Conroe.

This may be my go to BBQ joint in the area. Brisket sandwich, slices or chopped is very good. Right amount of smoke and moist. Onion rings are great....

We love Vernon's and I always order the BBQ chicken but my partner opted for the ribs. I gave them a try and now as much as I love their chicken, I can not pass up their ribs. I had always been a fan of McKenzies ribs but now it's Vernon's for me.

Love this place! Been enjoying since 2002, never disappointed. Mixed reviews are expected for place like this, everyone has an idea of what BBQ is and how it should be served(sauce, no sauce, etc.). The main thing to look for is good food prepared consistently, friendly staff, friendly diners who talk with you, clean, and this place has all that.... More

The brisket is awesome. It is now my gold standard for brisket! Thank goodness my husband ordered it, because I had ordered the chicken. The sauce is wonderful, and the atmosphere is lively!

This is one of the best places for BBQ. It is worth the drive from Spring. Service is good and the folks that work there are friendly and attentive.

I have tried and re-tried Vernon's numerous times over the years and the sliced bbq brisket is at most only fair in taste and quality. In my opinion, it is of fast food burger quality as in Golden Arches - junk food quality. I am 50 years old and must have been spoiled all the years I lived in Houston... More

BBQ was only OK. Sides of okra were burned but replaced when we complained. Furnished to look like an old country shack and it did. Several chairs needed new bottoms and the peanut shells on the floor, from the free table peanuts, combined to make the whole lunch experience less than we wanted. We also prefer a condiment bar at... More

While visiting the Conroe area we just had to have some Texas Bar B Q. Our resort highly recommended Vernon's and we were not disappointed. We arrived hungry and the buckets of salted in the shell peanuts on every table helped quell our hunger until our sandwiches were ready. The beef was done to perfection and seasoned just the way...

We stopped in for some BBQ and I had to have the chicken. I ask for it with the sauce on the side because I am not a fan of sauce on BBQ. It is still the best BBQ chicken hands down anywhere. It's as good as my dads and that is saying a lot. Get the pinto beans as... More
