We have lived in this area over 25yrs. We have often taken the SH~105 route thru the years, and have often seen and noticed a full parking lot at Vernon's Kuntry Katfish.

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.

Hi there. Thanks for checking us out while you were in town from Mississippi, but I wish we'd hit the mark for you.

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.

We're on holidays in Texas and decided to try This highly rated catfish joint. First, you have to be honest with yourself. Do you love southern home-style cooking? If so, you won't be disappointed.

Our party of 8 was seated promptly and greeted in a friendly manner by the hostess and waitress. The children were given placemats and crayons to keep them occupied during the very short wait for food and drinks to arrive. The complimentary hush puppies are good but spicier than the jalapeño poppers. The diners at our table selected a variety... More

The menu was interesting and lots of delicious options. The pickled green tomatoes and hush puppies were delicious. We knew it was fresh good homestyle cooking from the moment we walked by other's tables. There were smiles and it was a great meal.
