“Perfect catfish but check out green tomatoes...wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

If you are a foodie this place may not have the slick ambiance you might want.
If you are a foodie and can take it down to a laid back, country level, this is the PLACE.

We usually hit the place once a year after pulling the boat off the lake; it is shorts, tee shirts and messy hair kind of place as THE FOOD is what it is all about.

A-MAZING fried catfish - don't do it often but when I do, love it. Perfect breading, tender juicy catfish with just right flavors. Love it. The hush puppies are equally as perfect but what sends this place over the top is the green tomato relish they sere with it; chunky with a tad of spice and sweet mixed in. It is a MUST have. Great cole slaw, beans, sides but the catfish and green tomato relish are worth writing about without a doubt.

Make the drive to this place...it is the reall deal country catfish spot.

“Don't Stop Here!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

The location is okay, as is the parking and the staff. The one thing I can t really get past in this place is their food! I ve been about 4 times now and I ve gotten a few things including the seafood gumbo and the chicken fried steak. My boyfriend is a huge fan of You should try everything twice before you judge. I am done trying this place and all of their food. You have two options, and they should split the menu accordingly, Salty and Zero Flavor . A lot of the sides have absolutely no flavor. The chicken fried steak is just a slab of flavorless meat. And the seafood gumbo! HOLY SMOKE! Just looking at it can make you bloat. I couldn t even finish it and it gave me a huge headache from the sodium. The crowd consists mainly of families and older people who come in groups and couples. It s not a bad atmosphere...the food just isn t very good.

“Best Catfish in SE Texas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Best Catfish you'll find anywhere close to Houston. Their coleslaw and hushpuppies are so good they have become my taste standard! Try their Good Pie for desert. And they make really good sweet tea. For those allergic, they do use peanut oil for all their frying though.

“Best Catfish in Texas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Vernon's has been making the best catfish for as long as I can remember- lunch today was no exception! Three pieces of fried or grilled catfish and two sides with a drink for $9 is hard to beat. Everything from the coleslaw to the cocktail sauce was perfect! The service was good and the restaurant has a nice comfortable feeling. The only problem is that there is always a crowd at normal dining hours-- get there early or be prepared for a short wait-- the food is worth it!
