This place has got the BEST chicken alfredo pizza! The cheesesticks are very tasty, and if you're a salad lover, the Greek salad with the chicken on the side is GREAT. They have the best dressing that comes along with it, as well as bread and butter. Great place to kick back with friends--definitely NOT a fancy place, so come... More

Yes, they have more than one location in town, but you get fresh, consistent food without the 'cookie cutter/big box' experience. Delivery or dine-in, the food is always great, especially the margarita pizza.

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.
