Local Places to Eat in Darlington during Raceweek


It's raceweek in Darlington, and that means a ton of new visitors have come to town to enjoy the rubbing and racing at Darlington Raceway. It also means a lot more people are in town than usual, so there will inevitably be longer lines and wait times at our area restaurants, but hopefully we can all have a little patience and enjoy the atmosphere. If you're new to the area, or are just looking for a place to eat near the track, here are some of our local favorites.

**BONUS HARTSVILLE RESTAURANT that's so good we had to include it

Bizzell's Food & Spirits

137 E Carolina Ave

Hartsville, SC 29550

Bizzell's is probably a 15 minute drive from the Racetrack in the town of Hartsville, but it's well worth the drive. It's more upscale than the rest of our local picks, the food is delicious, and they are famous for the basket of complimentary muffins that come with your meal.
