Vernon's Kuntry Bar-B-Que
5000 West David Street
For a classic southern catfish feast served with fried okra, mustard greens, jalapeno hush puppies, and sweetened iced tea, head for Vernon's Kuntry Bar-B-Que in Conroe, Texas. Mississippi catfish is the connoisseur's choice and Vernon's serves it the traditional way - coated with cornmeal and deep fried. Jane loves the Chicken Fried Steak served with mashed potatoes and cream gravy and says don't pass up Vernon's 'Good Pie' for dessert. It's a rich concoction of cream cheese, pineapple chunks, banana, nuts and chocolate syrup.
