Bart's Restaurant, 1946

Bart's Drive-In has been a local landmark beside the Farmington River since 1946. Founded by Bart Dillon, Sr. and William Hastings, the simple cinder block takeout stand stood close to Palisado Avenue. Today's brick-faced building with the lighter colored BART'S lettering was erected in 1962. With a commitment to "good food, good service, and good people," three generations of the Dillon family operated the restaurant for a total of 55 years. In 2005 a trio of local businessmen took over. Weekly cruise nights and other family friendly events in the parking lot continue to foster community camaraderie. Copyright 2015 Windsor Historical Society.
