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,... More

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.

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.

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.... More

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..

we enjoyed a half veggie and half meat laden pizza. We had the NY style, hand tossed crust. Both of us were satisfied. The veggies were excellent. Just the right amount of cheese, not overbearing. Several local beers available. Good service. Plenty of parking which can be a bit unusual for the Heights area.

Family restaurant that is great for small or large gatherings. Not fancy or glistening but, the best homemade pizzas the way you want them. Appetizers are terrific, like the hot goat cheese with hot Italian Bread. Your fingers will help you scrape out the dish as the bread is long gone. Our family had Mother's Day at this location yesterday.... More

Fresh ingredients, Best Pizza in Houston! Deep Dish non greasy pizza with fresh veggies. The taste can't be beat. It's Pizza Heaven. Remember to allow 30 minutes for the cooking of deep dish pizza. Please put one in Katy or Sugar Land! I can only enjoy when I am in the city,

Thank 3ofakine

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.
