There's a reason this Houston pizza institution is a favorite. It's also one of the few places to get deep dish around here.

Worst customer service experience of my life – Star Pizza on Harvard St gave me the wrong pizza. I realized it when I got home and they offered to send the correct one right away. I waited for over an hour and ate some of the slices from the wrong pizza thinking they weren't going to show up with the new one. The driver eventually came and even asked for the old pizza back.

Later I received a phone call from the owner who was very abrasive. He claimed I ordered the wrong pizza on purpose and after I told him that was incorrect, he argued with me and contended that I was there to scam him out of a pizza {I have a well-paying career--I don't need to scam a pizza parlor out of $13}.

I told him it was unprofessional to accuse good customers of scamming and that he was losing a lot of money from this behavior since I planned to tell everyone I knew. He escalated to yelling and I told him I was recording the call (which I was) hoping that he would then calm down. His response was "I don't care if you're recording. I KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE" which I took as a threat and ended the call.

Some people may have had a great experience at this restaurant but mine was absolutely horrific and I do NOT recommend this place to anyone.

Truly a star of a pizza – Everyone has their favorite pizza joint. Like with football teams, each and every person has their particular favorite and will defend it with a zealotry usually reserved for religion. Nevertheless, I have never taken anyone to star pizza that hasn't raved about it afterward. It is the great equalizer.

When you do go, you have to order a Chicago deep-dish style pizza. Most of us are used to the NY style, but the deep crust with heaps of cheese, sauce, and condiments is the stuff that dreams are made of. My personal favorite is the Marilyn's and it just blows my mind every time I get it. It's like being in love. Every time I have it, it just gets better. While certainly pricier than your usual Domino's/huge deliver chain, as soon as you sink your lucky teeth into the beautifully hand crafted pies, you realize where those extra 5-6 dollars went. If you live within delivery range, you really have no business ordering from anywhere else, you are doing yourself a great disservice.

To top it off, eating at any of their two locations is always a hoot, it's fun to sit back and people watch, their clientele tends to fall to the "interesting" crowd. So just trust me on this one, you cannot go wrong with a deep dish, and you can even order a wheat crust to boot!

Yummy Pizza! – We like to call in advance so our pizza will be almost ready when we arrive. That way it's warm and gooey, and we don't have to wait too long. It's torture to sit in the dining room for 30 minutes when you're really hungry.

Quite possibly the best pizza place in Houston – If you are tired of chain restaurant pizza, or buffet pizza places with hundreds of screaming kids, then this is the place to go. The whole wheat crusts are something to be experienced. The Chicago-style deep dish is a favorite, even the veggie pies beat chain restaurant pizza any day.The pizza is made fresh. The service is friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. No loud music or televisions here, its a very relaxing atmosphere. Its a required weekend destination for me. I only wish they had a larger selection of pastas, this place would be unstoppable if they sold fresh pasta dishes.

Great Food, Cruddy delivery service – Why am I the one putting Star out by ordering a pizza for delivery? I eat there enough and they are always rude on the phone. I actually get scared to call them because I know it will be unpleasent to talk with them.

I hate calling for delivery. If we need something delivered, we go through the myriad of other restaurants that deliver and if we have to we settle on Star.

Do you (Star Pizza) really get enough business at your store at 9:00 PM that you can't tolerate delivery. Just stop answering the phone or cancel your delivery service.

I am sure I will call again because I like your pizza but it will not be anytime soon. I was born and raised in Houston and have been to Star since I was 10 over between shepherd and greenbriar. Please take care of your customers because last time I checked, return business is still your biggest money maker.

I don't know what's going on with these other reviews, but... – I have had nothing but good experiences with Star Pizza in the Heights. We order delivery pizza from them probably once a week and it is always hot and delicious. The one time we had any problem (the driver hadn't shown after an hour and ten minutes) a quick call back to the restaurant and our meal was on the house (note: I did not demand this, it was simply offered by the courteous manager).

A note before you go or order: the "thin" or New York style crust is not the traditional ultra thin and crispy crust you'd expect from a Manhattan joint. It is thicker than that and more substantial. The "thick" or Chicago style crust is quite thick, but not as greasy as Chicago style crust can often be.

I would recommend the Margarita pizza on the thin whole wheat crust. It comes with fresh basil and garlic, with sliced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. Delicious!

I can't speak to the quality of the dine-in experience, but if you order for delivery I find it hard to believe you will get a pizza that is "disgusting" or "inedible."

Looking Forward to Prison Food – Terribly disappointing. I never ate such lousy food. Being from Venezuela, I've come to expect that from Houston restaurants. I spent my last $10 to eat this garbage. It was my last meal as a free "man." Now I have to serve my lenghy prison sentence, always remembering what a lousy, last night I experienced.

Fresh ingredients? Nope. – This was my first time at Star Pizza in the heights. The pizza was inedible! My brother and I ordered the same: chicken alfredo. After the wait, my order arrived wrong (I had requested avocado). I told the waitress and she replies "oh s***! I forgot that." Everything would have been fine after that, but both my brother and I ate a slice and we were disgusted with the chicken. I have no idea how it was seasoned, but it was *completely* over-seasoned and overwhelmed everything else on the pizza. My friend eating with us, who had luckily ordered a different pizza, remarked that the chicken looked exactly like Tyson Chicken that you buy in pouches at the supermarket. I've always had good pizza at the location on Norfolk, and from now on, that's where I will go!
