Our family visited after church this past Sunday. The vibe of this little roadside stop is everything you want from a family BBQ. The casual seating and walk up counter make everything seem very family oriented and personable. The menu offers so many BBQ must haves and all of the sides you'd want with traditional BBQ. My husband and I... More

Texas Bar B Q means great brisket & homemade sausage that's only available @ your place, not from a store! The brisket was passable but the sausage was a non factor. The ham had a little smoke in its flavor, but nothing to be proud of. Sides are equally important in Texas ! How do you screw up Fried Okra?... More

Vernons Bar B Q, just down from Vernons Catfish, and founded by the same original "Vernon" is great local place in conroe. The bar b q is excellent, my favorite in town. They also have great seasoned fries, but their menu encompasses just about everything, from fajitas to steak. This is a place where all the locals go, usually on... More

We eat at lots of BBQ places, so we know what we like and what is really great. This was ok BBQ. Ribs were big, parts were more tender than other part. Brisket was chewy with no smoky flavor or bite to it. I liked the coleslaw ok-sweet, with Miracle Whip flavor. Beans were flavorful, like home cooking. Mac N... More

Its quite a way from our home so when I'm on the south end of Lake Conroe so I stop when ever i'm in the area. They have a large menu but as a creature of habit i only go for the BBQ. Ribs, beef, chicken and ham plus burgers fries and much more. Family owned and very friendly. Sometimes... More

My wife and I have driven by this place several times over the past few months, and there was always a large number of cars parked in the lot...made us think it must be good. However, when we finally decided to give it a try, we weren't impressed. We both had the brisket sandwiches with a side of fries and... More

Always crowded! Excellent food, BBQ, Burgers, other Texas traditional fare! The tamales at Christmad are especially fantastic. They must be pre-ordered by the dozen.

If you're looking for a good "old fashioned" BBQ or Burger joint, look no further! Very good, inexpensive, and as you'd expect an old BBQ place to be - not formal, not elegant, but they bring the food to you after you've ordered at the counter, the beer is cold, and there are no frills to pay for. If you're... More

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.
