Family owned and operated, Vernon's Kuntry Katfish provides home-style cooking in a casual and comfortable environment.

Customer favorites include chicken fried steak, and of course, our famous katfish. Everything on our menu is cooked to order and made fresh every day - we guarantee consistent flavors and quality. We believe in high-quality products, large portions, and fast, friendly service.

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. The server keep our glasses full and regularly checked in to see if we needed... More

Hey, thanks for stopping by while you were down from Colleyville! Sorry the fried green tomatoes weren't your style, but I'm glad everything else from the catfish to the pickles hit the spot. Hope to see you back around here next time you're in the neighborhood! Safe travels, Buster, General Manager More

Great food at reasonable prices. The atmosphere was great and the service was very friendly! The hush puppies were wonderful and so was the tomato relish. I had the chicken fried steak "Texas style." The mashed potatoes were real potatoes and the green beans were yummy with bacon and onions like I make at home. I took a piece of... More

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. The fish was very good, fried crispy just the way I like my catfish. The small dinner came with 3-4 fillets, plus the two sides...plenty to... More

Hey, Reagan! Thanks for coming by for some catfish and okra while you were visiting town from Virginia. Sorry the pie didn't finish off the meal a little better for you -- that's good to know! Hope you had a great rest of your trip. Safe travels, Buster, General Manager More

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!

Fiance was craving seafood so we decided to try Vernon's Kuntry Katfish. The Waitress was friendly enough; took our order and brought us hush-puppies to snack on. The Hush-puppies were soooooo dry! Maybe over cooked, but super dry...we only ate one each. My fiance ordered the sampler platter w/ Coleslaw. His coleslaw arrived with no dressing...Yep, just a bowl of... More

Michelle, really sorry to hear that your Hush Puppies didn't kick off the meal right -- they shouldn't have been dry, and I'll make sure that feedback gets to the right people. As for your entrees, it goes without saying that your fiance's slaw should have been a slaw, and I wish the fish and chicken had treated y'all right,... More

Not much on ambiance but it's a sure-enough catfish house. Fried catfish is the big seller so they must be doing something right. I had the blackened catfish and wasn't impressed.

If you are looking for home cooked just like momma used to make it food, then this is your place! I have been eating here since they opened and I don't have one complaint to tell you.
