We were in the mood for deep dish pizza, and saw that Star Pizza had it, so we decided to visit. The restaurant is very casual, with murals and graffiti. We started with the baked goat cheese, which was really flavorful. We ordered a deep...dish that was half Starburst (Supreme pizza) and half Ben's (meat toppings). It was really good . I agree with another reviewer that they don't use as much cheese as I remember Chicago deep dish pizzas having, but it was still very good and didn't leave us feeling overstuffed. They have wheat crust available, too, which we ordered and enjoyed. We would definitely visit again when we're in the area.More

Great food, very delicious! Waiter was attentive & patient with our grandchildren. Would go in off peak hours, very small place. Plus a lot of signage indicating not to leave items in cars-daytime may be better idea.

I ordered a pizza, cheese bread, and a salad. Enjoyed them all. Delivery was quick and the food was warm. No complaints at all. It’d get it again.

Star Pizza in the Houston Heights has been around forever. The city has grown around it-- a car wash on one side, a bridal shop on the other, and a supermarket across the street. But the food remains the same and very good. The interior...has a vintage feel, with antique wooden tables (with new tops) and chairs. A dining area and a separate room for the sports fans. The pizza menu is extensive, but I opted for the meat lasagna with a side of vegetables (a side not on the menu, but they whipped it up special for me). My husband got his usual (at Italian restaurants): a large Caesar salad with sides of meatballs and sausage. Our server Chris was helpful and professional. He was the one who made sure I got the mixed vegetables I requested. More

The title says it all. I ordered a Chicago style pizza. I’m from Chicago and knew it probably wouldn’t be anywhere as good. But I never figured it would as awful as it was. My pizza was totally undercooked. It was cold n the center....The sauce has absolutely no flavor. The crust was like the cardboard box that I threw it away in. These people need to actually take a trip to Chicago and get some tips on how to cool a Chicago style pizza. Do not waste your time or your money going here. You’d be better off going to dominoes.More

Took our grandkids and tho the service was good, the food was not. Vegetable pizza was terrible—no sauce, just smushed vegetables on crust. No cheese. Cheese pizza had way too much sauce and the kids couldn’t even hold it without the sauce and cheese sliding...off the soggy crust. Even the Greek salad wasn’t good. Beef pizza was good—More

This restaurant comes highly recommended by the locals as the go-to place for the best pizza in Houston. Such recommendations should never be ignored. Even in that strange period between Christmas and New Year, this place is busy. The restaurant itself is very informal and...somewhat rustic, and is housed in the original building that was opened by two guys from Chicago in 1976. It is spread over two levels, plus outdoor seating, and there is always a proliferation of customers waiting for their to-go orders. Parking can be an issue, as the parking lot is limited, and traffic around the building is chaotic - a testament to the popularity of the place. Now to the menu. The pizzas are available in both New York (hand tossed) Style and Chicago (Deep Dish) Style, in three sizes as well as in personal 8" size, either on a white or wholewheat base and everything has a gluten free option. There is also a 'build your own' option, so you can have your pizza any way you like it. I was rather intrigued by the Chicken Alfredo option, which is quite original and unusual. The chicken in Alfredo sauce also came with mozzarella, gorgonzola and provolone cheese, sauteed mushrooms and onions and chopped basil. Perfectly baked and delicious. Others in our party had the Starburst (ground beef, Italian sausage, pepperoni, onions, mushrooms, green peppers) and Portofino (olive oil base, olives, Feta cheese, artichoke hearts, roma tomatoes and basil). Significantly, this option comes with no pizza sauce The garlic bread with marinara sauce was also delicious (see pictures). I have no doubt that this restaurant probably has the best pizza in Houston, and it is refreshing to see such a wide range of options, all available in gluten-free, which is always a plus. Seriously good pizza, not overpriced. Worth investigating.More
