I don't write a lot of reviews, but I had to write one about this place. The food is very good. You can customize your pizza in virtually every way, and the various options on the menu are very good without changing a thing. The...restaurant is always clean, and the complimentary bread with the cilantro or chipotle dipping sauce is awesome. The staff are very friendly and nicely enforce Covid 19 protocols. Definitely recommend.More

Yesterday was our first time dining at this restaurant and we look forward to visiting again. The food was excellent and happy hour drinks were priced well. I made my pizza vegan and it had great taste, usually not an easy thing to accomplish. The...potato wedge appetizer was a good choice too. The server was attentive but did seem a bit standoffish or tired, not sure which. Anyway, we gave a 30% tipMore

In the mood for really good pizza, we went to trip advisor looking for a recommendation. El Canton was the top-rated pizzeria in our area, so we thought we'd give it a try. We were a little worried about walking in at 7 or so...on a Friday night and the place was pretty empty. The atmosphere is confusing. It's a pizzeria in what looks like a Mexican restaurant. The waitstaff was friendly enough, but not all that attentive and little clueless. We ordered a Ceasar salad and a pizza. The Ceasar was iceberg lettuce and croutons with a side of Ceasar dressing with perhaps a sprinkling of dry parmesan cheese. Bagged salad from the grocery store would have been more gourmet, but it tasted okay for what it was. Then our pizza came and boy was it unimpressive. Tasted okay, but probably the worst restaurant pizza I can remember in Katy other than CiCi's. If you want mediocre pizza at decent price and are in the mood for karioke on Friday nights, this is your place. If you're looking for the BEST pizza in Katy, go elsewhere!More

Thin crust, cheese perfectly proportioned. Delicious sauce. I’m picky about my pizza and I’ll admit I was nervous walking in because there is zero Italian vibe. But the food and service were so great!!!

My husband, son and I went to El Canton for my husband's birthday lunch. It is close to home and we had never tried it before. We had the sample tray, plus lasagna for my husband, pizza for my son and fettucine alfredo for myself....Everything was delicious. The fettucine alfredo was so large that I brought the rest home for supper tonight. The service was good as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for families as well as those that enjoy a good pizza.More

We loved our visit. Kids had so much fun. Our server was always friendly. the kids got a piece of dough to play with but they baked it at the end..our Pizza had lots of meat on it which we loved! The atmosphere was nice...and quiet even though there were several tables. Definitely going back soonMore

While I certainly wouldn't categorize the pizza as 4 or 5 stars (as others have), it is really good pizza. The first time that we ate here the pizza was really good. The sangria was awful - completely watered down and iced down. The mango...margarita was good - worth having again. The second time that we ate here the pizza was average and the wings were awful. Our lips burned from the amount of vinegar in the sauce -- and they were doused in sauce. No way to avoid the sauce except to wipe it on our napkins. This time, the wait staf really lacked though too. My water was empty 75% of the visit and I ordered the pizza with the chipoltle sauce on it so keeping my water filled was more than necessary. We may not return after this last visit.More
