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.

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, but don't get one if you plan to eat all of your pizza. Everything is good.

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.

Good lunch buffet with pizza, pasta, salad and dessert pizza. They keep restocking buffet with fresh hot food. They also deliver, try the Bass Bing or the Star Special

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.
