Want the best pizza in Texas? I know that is a very broad, and debatable claim, but I think it is. Hands down, you won't be hungry when you leave. The pizza is a little pricey, but you get your money's worth. There is cheaper...More

Star is probably Houston's best non-chain pizza places. Everything is made fresh, even their dressings. Love the creative menu and the quality of the food. That is something other places lack. Staff is quirky and energetic, but fun.

Classic Houston. Definitely some of the best pizza this city has. Try the roasted garlic with bread - it's amazing.

Great pizza with lots of toppings. The crust and sauce are really yummy. They can get really busy (and then slow). Parking can be a headache.

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.
