Star has been a good pizza joint for a while and it is still pretty darn good. They have a few different styles but to be honest, they're all pretty good. I like my pizza simple, pepperoni or sausage, and they don't mess it up. Pretty

Wow I have had good pizza before but Star takes the cake. Its the crust totally out of this world. Would have have given 5 stars but the service was a bit slow.

Ordered a 14.50 Veggie pizza, needed delivery. They charged over 20.00 which was a 5.50 mark up. Taxes do not come to a third of the cost of the pizza. So that free delivery is

Pizza is the best I ever had in Houston.We ordered the Starburst, Marlyn's and Chicken Alfredo. The sauce is excellent, and the best one for me is the Starburst.

The wait is a bit long, but your patience will be rewarded with a pizza

Every one knows and has come to expect a long wait from this pizza place because it is one of the best in Houston. However, I come here with my friends every time they are in town and we can't get enough of it. Simply amazing!

After hear about this place for years I tried it out 3 times. Each time I asked myself, what about this pizza is so enlightening to houstonions? There is no zing to their sauce. The crust is mediocre. The toppings are not particularly exotic. The amount of time it took for the pizza to be made was entirely too long each time.

Will I go there again? Hhmmm... yea no.

We love to try different types of pizza but nothing comes close to Star. They have the best pizza! It takes a while to get the food, service is ok, but the food is worth every minute.

People have raved about Star pizza in Houston. I live in Sugar Land so I wasn't about to drive 30 minutes to get pizza, but I allowed my friends to coax me into driving the distance. We get there and there is no parking, there are 50 people or so standing outside waiting for a table. I said to my friends "are you serious? is the pizza that good?" While waiting, I go to the bathroom to wash my hands, OMG, I felt like I was going to hurl. The bathroom was so nasty, I didn't want to wash my hands. I washed my hands in the sink that had hair in it. Then vigorously used antibacterial gel and prayed that it would be sufficient. Meanwhile 2 groups of people that came after us were seated. I go to the front, they said they called us but, my friends were standing on the porch by the door and heard nothing... Finally seated. Pizza comes, it is good! But I think, 30 minute drive, 30 min wait, nasty bathroom... I think I will settle for the pizza spots back in Sugar Land like Candelari's pizza They have good pizza, good service, no wait and clean bathrooms.

I met my parents here as they raved about this place. The hostess at the front door was hard to find and we had to wait to be seated. Once we finally got a table, our server finally came around. She was ok , nothing special. It took almost one and a half hour to get our food. Our salads arrived 5 minutes before the pizza got to the table. Our drinks were never refilled. The bathrooms needed help. The urinals in the mens room smelled horrible. My mom said the ladies room was out of toilet paper. The pizza was alright. Nothing special. For the price of the pie, not enough ingredients were on it. It wasn't worth the wait and to get salads right before our pizza came was just not right. What has happened to this place my parents said? New owners? No customer service at all.

Whether or not Star Pizza itself calls this a "Montrose" location, it is not in Montrose. At least not the Montrose that most of us want to avoid when thinking about who is handling our pizzas. 59 and Shepherd is hardly "Montrose" so give it a rest already.

I've been enjoying Star Pizza for too many years to count. I'm 37 now, but have been eating there for WELL over 20 years (Norfolk location).

My wife & I recently ordered a pizza to-go, as has been our Sunday ritual for the last 3 years. When we got the pizza home, we opened the box to find the exact opposite pizza to what we usually get (anchovies, pineapple, jalapenos, wheat-crust, deep-dish).

I called to explain the situation to the management, and they said, no problem... just bring it back. We live 45 miles from Star's Norfolk location (we live in Pearland), so that wasn't an option. Eric & James (managers) assured me that they'd make it right by either a) refunding our money, or b) placing a 'credit' against my phone number/account.

Guess what... called in to exercise my 'credit', and lo-and-behold... no record of the transaction. I first spoke to Eric who was unwilling to assist and make it right, then I spoke to James, who was also unwilling to help and make it right.

I AM EXTREMELY ANNOYED by this situation. As I said earlier, I??ve been enjoying Star Pizza for 20+ years, but their unwillingness to make this situation right, has soured them in our mind. THEY HAVE LOST ME AS A CUSTOMER, and when I told them that they were losing my business, James said, and I quote, ??Fine with me. Don??t call back?.

Eat at Star if you want good pizza. If you want decent service and customer satisfaction, eat elsewhere.

Best pizza in town, and it isn't even close. They pile on the cheese and toppings, a medium is usually enough for 4 people when we go. Since everything is home made you'll have to wait longer than most places, but it is worth it.

My fiance and I used to love Star Pizza. We would order delivery at least once a week. For some reason we tapered off last year, and for the first time in many many months we ordered it again last night. After ordering, it took about an hour to get here. Upon opening it up, we realize they left off one of the main ingredients, and it was cold and hard to boot!
We called them and told the man that answered that our Margherita pizza had no basil on it. He offered to make us a new one (yay!) or send us some basil (um, what?). We opted for them to make us a new one, but then he said he would be taking the old one back with him!
I absolutely cannot believe a pizza place would deliver an incorrect, cold pizza, and then want it back, and tell us not to eat anymore!! What were they going to do with it? That is so far beyond sanitary that it made me never, ever want to eat there again.
If they wanted to make doubly-sure we didnt get a pizza free, then I honestly find that offensive. I refuse to even fathom them wanting it to re-sell, as slices or something.
The pizza we finally got (AN HOUR LATER--making us wait over TWO HOURS for the correct pizza!!) was pretty good, but it was tainted by the bitterness of disappointment and disbelief.

Go sit in the restaurant. Dont order delivery. Its not worth it.

My girlfriend and I are both students, and as such enjoy unique (non-chain) joints with great food and reasonable prices - thats exactly what you're getting with Stars. If you go expecting plush decor and smartly dressed waiteresses, you'll be disappointed. This is a good old no frills pizza place with both New York and Chicago styles to choose from. As vegetarians, I can't comment on the meat offerings, but the veggie special includes a bunch of juicy toppings like broccoli, mushrooms, etc. Its a toss-up between Star and Frank's as to who does the 'best' pizzas in town, but if we're talking toppings I'd have to go with Star!

we went on a Sat and ordered a medium pizza and I am not making this up, it took over an hour and a half to get our pizza while we waited and waited 4 other people (who came in after us) ate before us. Horrible. The server didn't care that it took forever and did not give us any explaination. we didn't even bother to speak to the manager we were so angry.

If you can't get to Chicago, Star Pizza is the closest thing in Houston. It can get crowded on weekends, but they usually keep up with demand. Parking is not great, but you can usually find a spot on the streets near by.

If your in the mood for fantastic food in an uber-trendy atmosphere, you will probably love it, too. The was great and the waitstaff , albeit overtly cool, was very friendly. Try the Margherita Pizza or the Rosemary & Garlic Grilled Chicken Sandwich.

The pizza I had delivered last night from Star Pizza in the Heights was DIS-GUS-TING and pretty much inedible. What was wrong with it? Well the main problem was WAAAAAAAAY too much cheese. That caused other problems as well. For example, New York style crust is supposed to be crispy!! This crust was the total opposite of crispy. It was doughy and moist and the pieces totally fell apart when we removed them from the box. Additionally, because of the inch-thick layer of rubbery cheese, when I received the pizza, much of the cheese had already slid off the top of the pizza, taking most of the toppings with it and coming to rest stuck to a corner of the cardboard box. All in all, it was one of the most disgusting pizzas I have ever had in my life. The only part that I could bring myself to eat was the crust. If I could do the night over again I would have saved some money and gotten a way more edible frozen pizza or Papa Johns

This place is awsome. I love the cozy feeling this place has. My girlfriend and I were seated very promptly and had a nice table with the angel babys but. It was a packed house but we felt alone because of the large seats we had. The Pizza is the best I ever had. Im a really hearty guy and usually i eat an average of 4 slices, yet the pizza slices at this joint were so big and fool of toppings that I only ate 2. Best place to hang out with a group friends after a movie.

I had heard such great things, but what a disappointment. Our waiter was lacking any personality and was very inattentive. The deep dish pizza was soggy and covered in mushrroms for lack of the other ingredients promiced by the menu's description. And the bathroom was so gross I thought I would get a disease. It's not good at all, just trendy, but I don't like to follow the crowd so I will never go there again. It was way way over priced, almost 20$ for a large supreme! Barry's is the best.

Star is the best and most original pizza joint in Houston. Pizzas take 30-40 minutes to cook, so either order ahead of time before you arrive at the restaurant or try the goat cheese truffle or the Chelsea salad while you're waiting. Both are fantastic preludes to Star's delicious pizza. If you haven't tried Joe's pizza on a deep dish crust (try whole wheat!), you don't know what you're missing!

You must order the roasted head of garlic with goat cheese for starters! Each clove is like a warm, buttery explosion in your mouth! As for your meal, you can't go wrong with any pizza, pasta or entree. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed; great for a casual date, family dinner or night out with your friends. You will not be disappointed! If you want awesome pizza, Star is the only place to go!

I love Star Pizza...the Chicago style pizza is the reason I can't shed these unwanted pounds. The pizza does take some time to come out, however, it's worth the wait. The waitstaff is very friendly but you wouldn't want to take them home to your mom. There's as many tattoes, piercings, dread locks, and pink hair as there is toppings. No matter how weird it looks inside that place, I continue to feed my hunger and I live a good thirty minutes away. Go there it's awesome!

After reading the reviews here on CitySearch I decided to try this place out. Total waste of money and all around bad experience. The pizza was bland, very little sauce, and the dough tasted like a bagel. Will not be going back and am not sure how this place has been around so long.

After reading the reviews here on CitySearch I decided to try this place out. Total waste of money and all around bad experience. The pizza was bland, very little sauce, and the dough tasted like a bagel. Will not be going back and am not sure how this place has been around so long.

Pros: Parking

Cons: Food Taste/Quality, Waitstaff, Price

This is my second favorite pizza joint (first being Late Night Pie). I usually get the Margharita pizza. Their whole wheat crust is actually GOOD! The Harvard St. location has a Ms. PacMan machine.

Of all the pizza I've had, Star Pizza is my favorite. I've eaten there many times, and the quality is consistent. They make the best margherita pizza I've ever had, and it is my favorite there. The second best is the Joe's, which has spinach and garlic. Always go for the thick wheat crust - it's the best. The atmosphere is relatively nice and the servers have never disappointed me. My sister had her rehearsal dinner here and they made some vegan pizzas for my brother in law's friends. I went out of my way to take my friends here when they visited Houston.

Pros: Amazing pizza, Wheat crust

I have always been a fan of Star Pizza since I learned about it, but for some reason never tried any of their specialty pizzas till recently. I would highly recommend the Grilled Chicken Alfredo Pizza, and the Salsa Verde Pizza. I can't really do any better job describing them other than seriously delicious and worth trying. I also just tried the Salsa Verde as a Focaccia Pizza which is an 8 inch individual size on focaccia bread (perfect for one) and it was wonderful as well. The Margherita Focaccia pizza is also great (haven't tried that one on their new york style crust but I'm sure it would be equally good).

Pros: the pizza!

the pizza is really the star of this place- exquisite crust, fresh toppings, tasty sauce. the spinach and artichoke deep dish is my favorite- along w/the brocolli and cauliflower. decent caesar and great lunch buffet- a real value! the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable- you're not rushed and the service is superb- the staff is very friendly!

Best Chicago style pizza in houston- and we should know- we're from Chicago! A great little place with indoor and outdoor seating. They even serve Diet Dr. Peppers- and that's hard to find at restaurants. Suggest you preorder because it takes about 45 minutes to cook a deep dish pizza.

The first time I tried Star Pizza I was working at the hospital! From that point on I could not get enough of Joe's Pizza! The crust is absolutely marvalous as it practically melts in your mouth and the ingrediants are always fresh and tasty! I don't think there has ever been a time when I did not have to wait for a table! The food is that fresh and delicious! It is well worth the money and the wait if you want good tasting fresh pizza every time!

I don't even like pizza very muc, but I'll always go to this place. The pizza is awesome and you can get it with different crusts and toppings. The drink glasses are HUGE so they dont leave you waiting for a drink while you wait! Very family friendly!

All you can eat pizza salad and Iced Tea for $6.50. What a deal. Add in the fact that the Pizza is outstanding and how can you go wrong.

Star's specialty pizzas are well worth the 30-to-35-minute wait. Although it offers a choice of New York-style thin crust or Chicago-style deep-dish, rest assured that these pizzas are distinctly Texas-style: big, hearty and heavy on the…
