Great variety on the lunch buffet with fresh, quality ingredients. Best pizza buffet salad bar. Not impressed at all with their sauce. Enjoyed the free wifi (ask for password) and atmosphere. They maintained a great variety of pizza, and there were always good pies available....More

After researching Chicago style pizza options in Central Houston, we picked Star Pizza for a sit-down dinner. Four of us split two large Greek salads (a large is big enough for 3 people) while waiting on two pizzas to come out of the oven. A...More

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.
