Disappointing this time. – Well tonight was the first night I?ve ever been disappointed with this food. We?ve been ordering for some time now for home delivery.
My pasta primavera was made with frozen ingredients (some). I would never, ever order any item thinking I?d receive frozen ingredients. I took several bites and then just threw it away just now. It was dreadful. Also, the salad which I?m SUCH a fan of doesn?t look nearly as good as it always has. Since it?s all I?m having for dinner, it will do and of course the dressing is delightful as always, but the salad is not up to spec. My husbands spaghetti with sausage was good, he says.
I will never again order the primavera. See, I?ve ordered it in the past and it?s been good! Not so this time. MUSH for veggies and that foul odor of frozen. What a disappointment.
save your money, save the disappointment – 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, by the time 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
TOTALLY DISAPPOINTING!... Star on Washington gets TWO BIG THUMBS DOWN LATELY – The last time our group went to Star for what used to be our Sunday afternoon tradition we hoped it would be better than the previous few times.... Considering we had bad service and inconsistently prepared food the previous two times we went, we had an idea what to expect, but had our hopes up. We used to love the pizza and and unpretentious/earthy waitpersons that gave it an edgy and funky feel. This last time we went (and I do mean LAST), the service was annoyingly slow, and the young, brunette waitress had the attitude that she could care less that we were waiting 25 minutes to get our salads... Then while waiting, flagging down a service person to get ice tea refills meant walking into the other room and finding a busboy who could track down our (Any!) waitperson. When the pizza finally arrived it was both cold and under-cooked (WTF??!)... We had also ordered extra-sauce on the pizza, which our disinterested waitress forgot to put on the order ticket.... For all this, no apologies from the waitstaff after we complained. No visit or follow-up from the manager or apology from the kitchen staff, even after we told them this was probably one of the worst (if not THE worst) experiences we had ever had at Star. We also told them that over the last year both the service and food inconsistencies had dragged this place down. Previous times, we had wrong orders come out, cold pizza, cheese and crusts that were doughy & uncooked, then recooked, and STILL uncooked, and numerous issues with the ambivalent or rude waitstaff. Mind you, we gave this place chance after chance, because honestly, my girlfriends and I used to love it. So, in spite of our consistent patronage, obviously Star's management (if they even have any) doesn't care about pleasing repeat customers. It's a shame because it once was a great place... Star on Washington does not care about its reputation even more than it does not care about your experience....This place is now officially a loser in my book.
The best pizza in houston!!! They have excellent service and great pizza. They also deliver promply!
best pizza – Whenever you crave pizza there is no place like Star Pizza. It is always busy so, we call our order ahead and dine-in. It is always delicious and we usually eat the entire pie.
Downhill – The pizza here can be good, but it is not worth the wait or the waitstaff. Lots of tension in the air, all the servers are surly. Zero attention to detail and irritated if asked to refill tea or bring ENOUGH plates or extra napkins. Practically slammed our salads on the table while passing by. Never asked if everything was okay (probably knew they didn't want to hear the answer), held us hostage waiting for the bill long after we had all finished eating. Our family was out for a fun Friday and this experience put a damper on the evening. When this horrid memory fades, I may be willing to try take-out, but will probably just drive a little further to Romano's.
Great tasting – Though there are vew bad reviews but there is plenty of good ones. Those who don't know what REAL pizza is should make a trip to the East coast or even to EUROPE to find out or an authentic pizzeria. There is a huge difference in the taste and flavors and ingredients, we call Domino's Pizza Hut, Papa John's etc, pizza but this is a true pizza place! Star Pizza does a great job of a close comparison to ones I have eaten in Italy. Yum!!
This is Pizza? – Until I ate at Star Pizza, I had a saying; "I've only met good and better pizza." Now I've met bad pizza. No pizza sauce!
Great Pizza Joint.. – Ill just list the points that made it one of my boyfriends and mine favorite pizza joints: Personality (definitely not your Pizza Hut or Dominos), home-made pizza sauce, awesome deep dish, can pick your own dough (highly recommend wheat), not too greasy (like some other places mentioned above), and you can have generous amount of fresh basil (upon request) sprinkled all over your pizza. Energetic staff, and very nice deck (love outside seating) make the meal even more pleasurable This place will always bring the sweetest memories.
Getting Skimpy. – I love the pizza and I used to love the Caesar Salads; but no more. I ordered a large chicken Caesar salad and was mad when I got home and found one piece of chicken and one container of the (fabulous) Caesar dressing. THAT'S WHAT A SMALL HAS. So I paid $9.20 for extra lettuce. Thanks Star, I guess I needed the fiber.
