They have a good buffet for lunch which is why I end up here sometimes. It's close to work and easy to get to. The food is above average and reasonably priced.

Today we ordered a pizza for delivery as we have done for many years. Unfortunately, it is becoming a common occurrence that the delivery time is over one hour. The person taking the order should have been honest enough to say that the pizza was...More

Star pizza is my go to pizza joint since its close to the heights. This is the only pizza that doesn't hurt my tummy. The cheese is perfect & not too gooey & I love that they use fresh ingredients and make everything from scratch....More

Ordered a cheese-sausage-mushroom-onion deep dish for delivery. Pizza arrived early, which is great, but it was nearly ice-cold and soggy in the middle. Very bland taste...added salt, pepper and dried garlic for a boost but still bland. We've eaten plenty of pizzas from Star, not...More

Stopped in this pizza place with several family members. Friendly and attentive staff. Good prices and fairly good menu selection. Food was good and served hot.

The food here is great. So is the price! We had a deep dish pizza and it was very nice! Love the crust. It seems that when we go the servers are always cold and uncomfortable. I felt they just threw the drinks and food...More

Ive had much, much better pizza. Was disappointed in our visit to Star - from all the great reviews I was expecting much better. Not the case, It was just average pizza. Not all that flavorful.

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.
