The Webers' grocery and eatery began with their yearning for seriously tasty meat–the thick, well-marbled chop that begs to be thrown on a hot grill. Blame it on Morgan's roots, growing up around rancher grandparents who ran cattle. He started researching heirloom varieties of pigs that could withstand the Texas heat. Before long, he and his father were driving back from Iowa with a trailer of Mangalitsa hogs and a business plan.
They started Revival Meats (713/410-2744), now located on the family farm in Yoakum. Revival Market (713/880-8463) features a deli offering its premium meats and co-owner and chef Ryan Pera's homemade sausages, sandwiches, and salads.
