Thanks for the heads-up about the menu error, Feroze! Looking into that now. We're so glad we got to help you fuel up for the drive back to Frisco, and it's awesome to know that the whole Patel crew was pleased by the choice! Come back and see us next time you're in Conroe.

This is my third visit in three years and for those who have never been, it's basically a local Cracker Barrel type restaurant with a specialty in catfish. The Pros: place is extremely popular and food turns over and is always hot and fresh. They do have kids and senior sizes and large sizes for big eaters and desserts are... More

Vernon's offers a menu for all tastes served with true Southern hospitality. Huge glasses of iced tea, hush puppies, pickled green tomatoes and that's before you order. If it's fish you want, they serve it fried, blackened or broiled with two sides. The pinto beans meet my foodie expectations along with the hush puppies.

"Southern hospitality" is just what I want to hear -- I'm glad we've delivered that for you in the past! I'll share your compliments with the waitstaff and the kitchen as soon as I get a chance. Noticed you're local, so we'll be looking forward to next time. Until then, Buster, General Manager More

The food was great. Good ole' fashioned comfort food. I had the fried catfish, green beans and mashed potatoes. My guest had the fried okra. Everything was prepared just the way we liked it. Service was fast and waitress was friendly. Good prices. If you're looking for a casual place to dine in Conroe with good food, this is it.

Teresa, it was a pleasure to get to cook up some comfort food when nothing else was gonna do! Thanks for letting us know that everything from the catfish to the sides was made just like you were hoping. Come back and see us next time you're down here from Austin!

The nice woman at the hotel recommended Vernon's. The hush puppies and pickled tomatoes are enough to go for but the entire menu looks great. I had the fried catfish.

Tried the large catfish plate, four decent sized fillets, they were fresh and lightly battered. The fried green tomatoes were different then any others we have tried and were a little too different for our tastes. The fried squash, hushpuppies and fried pickles were excellent.

This place is nothing fancy and is clearly where the locals go for catfish. I had the small catfish dinner and certainly didn't go away hungry. I had it with okra and pinto beans.

I'm pretty particular when it comes to catfish. Has to be cleaned extremely well (no skin left), coating should be crispy and still taste fish and seasoned! Vernon's has it all. Their mashed potatoes are real, not instant. Fried green tomatoes are plentiful. Pies are great too. If you're lucky enough to go at Christmas they make the BEST EGGNOG... More

Jodi, as someone who knows their catfish, we love hearing how much you enjoy ours! Appreciate the shout outs to the side dishes and pies, too -- those will most definitely make it to the people who whip them up every day. Hopefully we'll see you this summer!
