About Nat Hayden's

Established 2009

Nat Hayden's BBQ, located in Windsor, CT, first opened in 2009 and was named after Nathaniel Hayden, one of the original settlers of Windsor in 1633. His grandson Captain Nathaniel Hayden was a Revolutionary War hero, born in 1738. The name of the restaurant evokes the rich history of Windsor while the food evokes the rich tradition of barbeque.

The restaurant features a unique variety of Southern and other regional American barbeque styles, borrowing from the best of every type of barbeque for a combination of barbeque flavors. That's why we call it pan-Southern. We use hickory, apple and cherry wood to produce the sweet, smoky character of our barbequed meats. The atmosphere is comfortable and low key. We truly serve Down Home Food for Down Home Folks.
