Description: 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.

“Great Food and Interesting Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

While visiting the Conroe area we just had to have some Texas Bar B Q. Our resort highly recommended Vernon's and we were not disappointed. We arrived hungry and the buckets of salted in the shell peanuts on every table helped quell our hunger until our sandwiches were ready. The beef was done to perfection and seasoned just the way I like it. The side of slaw was just like my mother made. This is not a fancy place and it is pretty much serve yourself. You place your order at the counter when you walk in. You also get your own drinks. Even if I had to bring my own plate, I'd return in a heartbeat.

“Still the best BBQ Chicken Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2013 via mobile

We stopped in for some BBQ and I had to have the chicken. I ask for it with the sauce on the side because I am not a fan of sauce on BBQ. It is still the best BBQ chicken hands down anywhere. It's as good as my dads and that is saying a lot. Get the pinto beans as you side and you will not be disappointed

“Always excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

Local BBQ, joint, used to be 3-4 other businesses at one time or another, gas station, bait shop, etc.
You walk up and order, then sit family style on picnic benches while waiting on your food.
Eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor.
Their sliced beef is excellent, as are the John's rings.
You make your own drink, and soft drinks are tap or in the cooler.
Shuffleboard, and video games for the kids, juke box on the wall, pictures of locals over the years stapled everywhere.
Probably the best food for the price you can get in the county.
Can not go wrong with the daily specials.

“Texas at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

I could eat here every day. The food is really that goooood. All the barbeque is great - I have tried it all. Lots of sides, not just the potato salad and beans - maybe ten others besides. Their chicken fried steak is also tops. Real Southern Sweet Tea. Beer Garden is on the sign, but there is a family atmosphere and outdoor seating for those who want it. These folks know how to satisfy an appetite.
