Great pizza. Tasty salads. Everything is fresh with quality ingredients. The crust tends to be a bit thick... They don't serve a cracker crust variety here. We usually order the whole wheat New York style crust. Family friendly.

If you love deep dish Chicago style pizza it's on par with best you'll find anywhere. Love the starburst. But like all deep dish's they just take longer (35 minutes).

Cmon folks- really? This is Houston's best pizza? When will I learn not to read these reviews? I am completely sincere when I say that I'd order from pizza hut before I'd order from this place again. After raiding 10 straight, raving reviews I thought...More

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...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.
