Vermont has a full anything you can want BBQ menus. Great variety for lunch and dinner. Plenty to eat. Good barbecue, not on the superb level but good. Plenty of patronage with outdoor seating and beer garden in cooler temps. Good lunch stop.reasonable prices

Not many places you can eat, drink, and toss the peanut shells on the floor, but you can here. Great food (especially the ribs and ribeye steak).

I love the food here and the laid back atmosphere. My only complaint is that it is a bit expensive for BBQ. There's so many good BBQ places close by, and Vernon's is a bit more pricey than the competition. I'd rather eat at the Kuntry Katfish - it's about the same price for a wider and better variety of...

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

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

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.
