First time I ate this pizza, we ordered a half pineapple and half veggie, and it just blew our mind. The second time we went to eat to the place and it is just one of those places you really enjoy to be at and eat. It is and old vintage place, which has been ran by their owners who... More

I went with a friend for lunch and it was an interesting experience. They seated my friend and I at a nice window table in the back. The service was fast and staff was friendly. Apparently a server took my pizza to the wrong table and the other guest started to eat it. So, the manager came by to apologize... More

We unfortunately wasted or money at the Washington location. I can't understand or even believe they have the awards that they do. Not wroth it at all. No flavor on my build your own focaccia pizza. Thank God for the, unbeknownst to us, $1.25 each for a spoonful of the ranch dip, we got 2. The server should have told... More

When we find ourselves in downtown Houston we always have a difficult time picking a place to eat, but when it comes to Pizza we always go to Star Pizza. The atmosphere is very relaxed, associates are friendly, and service is always quick. In my opinion they make the best pizza using all fresh ingredients and their salads also good,... More

First time here and it was the best pizza we've ever eaten! You can order New York style or Chicago. We had Chicago deep dish style. Hey also offer pastas, sandwiches/subs. Even the Caesar Salad was excellent. The croutons were fresh and tasty. Great customer service. Definitely will be back.

Star Pizza was one of my late mother's favorite places, and definitely her favorite pizza place. As a matter of fact, she celebrated her 85th birthday there.

I have been going to star pizza for more than 25 years. It was a place that I could afford while in college. Now that I am all grown up and have traveled the world, including Italy, Chicago and new York, I can say, without a doubt, that this is some of the best pizza that I have ever had.... More

When we get the need for a pizza (like when all you want to do is drink wine and not cook anything) we call Star. It is kind of like Ghost Busters - -who are you gonna call. Their selections are unique and the ingredients are fresh..

Description
In the summer of 1976, Henry "Hank" Zwirek and his buddy, Ed, both native Chicagoans, grew tired of living in the windy city and relocated to Houston. Hank realized the burgeoning city lacked high quality pizza and delivery service (which was a norm in Chicago). In the summer of 1976, Henry "Hank" Zwirek and his buddy, Ed, both native Chicagoans, grew tired of living in the windy city and relocated to Houston. Hank realized the burgeoning city lacked high quality pizza and delivery service (which was a norm in Chicago). Acting on Hank's instincts, the two purchased a quaint two-story house on Norfolk and in October of 1976, a Star (pizza) was born.Business continued to thrive and Hank was eager to expand. In the summer of 1988 a second Star was born, affectionately named Star 2. The offspring of the original was located at 140 S. Heights Blvd. in the building that's now home to Chatter's.The original Star is still located in the house on Norfolk, and continues to offer the same homely atmosphere as it did in 1976. To this day the Zwirek family owns and operates both locations and thanks their loyal Star Pizzanites for their support throughout the years.
