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.

The Pizza is usually always good, but the wait staff is generally rude and slow. I've seen the wait staff eat pizza lick thier fingers and then continue to roll up silverware and napkins. They have a sign up front that says "be nice or leave" it should change to "get treated like crap or leave." I've tried to eat at this place MANY times to give it more chances and by trying to support local establishments, but not yet has this place done well.

“It's more then just pizza!!!”
Reviewed March 24, 2005

I love their salads and they have good pizzas. Spinach and garlic is my favorite, but the margherita is good too. Casual atmosphere with friendly service. There are too locations and I've found the service at this one to be a notch above the other, but the other was nice too. It's not far from downtown or the Heights area.
