My wife and I were in Conroe, Texas for just one night. We decided to try Kuntry Katfish after looking at the menu online. I had the chicken and sausage gumbo and crab cakes. My wife had blackened shrimp. Everything was delicious and hot. When...we sat down, the waitress brought over a plate of hush puppies and diced pickled green tomatoes. I never had pickled green tomatoes before and I was surprised at how tasty they were. The food came out fast and the portions were more than sufficient. If I ever find myself in Conroe, Texas again, I will go back and try the catfish. It looked amazing from what I saw on the table next to ours.More

We were seated just after 11AM. A little while later the table next to us sat down. Somehow that table got there drinks and ordered food before a waitress even asked us what we wanted to drink. Finally lost patience and went to find a...waitress. They were all in the back standing around gossiping. Obviously there is a lack of management issue herMore

We had to get takeout but the chicken was great, the sides were delicious and most importantly, they got our order right. Can't say much about the ambiance of the place but the food was bangin. Vernon's Kuntry Katfish is worth the stop. I had...some deep fried chicken was not disappointed. Highly recommended!More

Mmmm! I had the double friend chicken breast with mashed potatoes that was just perfect! Super crispy and huge portions! The hush puppies are also good, with a jalapeño kick! Yum!

Been a regular customer since 2002 (18 Yrs.) never disappointed! From burgers, seafood, hamburger steak with grilled onions its all very good served up with friendly service. The dinner salad with homemade ranch is absolutely THE BEST.

While traveling through Conroe Texas we stopped at Vernon’s Kountry Katfish. I ordered the fried catfish with fried okra. The catfish was absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the fried shrimp which came with 5 large shrimps and the shrimp was just as good. I also...ordered the good pie for dessert and loved it. I definitely recommend this restaurant.More

If you're new to the area or visiting, this is where to go! They're always busy, so expect to wait a bit, but it's definitely worth the wait. Everything is great. Catfish, chicken fried steak, and GREAT cobbler. No dieters here!

I think so. There was a Lions Club meeting taking place while we were eating there and there were quite a few attendees.
