Piggy Blue’s Bar-B-Que on Main Street in downtown Austin started when Ronald Meyer decided there was a need for good “Q” in Austin. 

With decades of meat knowledge and practice smoking meats in the back yard, not to mention countless experiences eating at BBQ joints around the country, he recruited his son-in-law and BBQ fanatic Josh Diaz as his business partner. 

Now owned by Josh, Piggy Blue’s Bar-B-Que also does mobile concessions and catering. “Where you can eat pig or eat like a pig!” 323 Main Street, South, Austin, MN  (507) 434-8485
