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.

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.

We are regulars at Star - at least twice a month if not every Friday night. Quality ingredients and consistent great pizza.

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. I order the Chicago style deep dish whole wheat crust starburst (kinda like a supreme). I love the tangy tomato sauce and the stringy melty cheese. They were doing whole wheat when whole wheat was not in vogue. It is crunchy on the outside and has a terrific flavor. I learned from our server that it has butter and shiner bock beer in it. no wonder I like it! service is excellent. however, you have to wait a little for these quality pies. don't fret! get a salad or appetizer to tide you over.

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..
