Hi, I’m Juliette! My husband, my 6-year-old and I love going out to eat and we are sharing our restaurant finds with you.

This week, my husband had been craving pizza for a couple of days so picked our favorite pizza place: Star Pizza.

We discovered this place about 10 years ago thanks to my wonderful New York style Ben's,a meat lover delightsister-in-law and we have been faithful customers ever since. They never fail to surprise us with the quality and freshness of their food.

We went to their Heights location on Washington. It has a welcoming front porch where you can eat and 2 rooms inside, one of which has a really big TV and an aquarium!

There is an old-fashioned PacMan video game that my son loves to watch. The decor is casual and simple, their bathroom is clean and spacious and families feel welcomed and comfortable there.

After all these years, we come back for our 2 favorite pizzas: my husbands picks the New York style Ben’s,a meat lover delight! ( we Chicken Alfredo Chicago style on wheat crustordered the small for $11.75) and I chose the Chicken Alfredo Chicago style on wheat crust ( $12.75 for a small). My pizza has chicken, mushroom, onion, Gorgonzola, mozzarella, Alfredo sauce and fresh basil.

It is mouthwatering, delicious, creamy and fresh! My son is a good mix of his Dad and his Mom: he eats both! Their crust is really uniquely tasty, thick enough but not dry and the wheat gives it a nutty aftertaste that works wonder with the toppings!

I hope we made you hungry! If so, please think of Star Pizza to eat out or even for delivery!

See you next week for our next culinary adventure!

Our Review:   Star Pizza is a funky hole in the wall restaurant. When we went at 12:30 on a Friday, it was packed, but we found a spot to sit in the back. It’s location, between two one way streets, makes it somewhat tricky to just “happen across”.  That said, we found the signs and arrows helpful and pulled in with no problem.

The restaurant is casual and kids are welcome. Weekdays from 11:00 – 2:00, there is a salad and pizza buffet. I got this for $8.95 and was happy to find all the fancy pizzas listed in the menu. The salad bar also had spinach, romaine, a variety of veggies, dressing and toppings. My favorite thing was probably dessert pizza with apples, nuts and cinnamon (but that’s no surprise).

My kids shared the spaghetti and meatball kids meal for $5.50. They devoured it and left they own mark on the restaurant table. (Spaghetti is a finger food, right?) Good thing the restaurant is casual enough not too care to much about a little marinara sauce.

Overall, our bill was $15.64 and I became a fan of Star Pizza. They deliver for free, so I see some more gourmet pizza in our near future.
