A ribbon cutting and grand re-opening were held at Lindbergh’s Southern Cooking, 1215 S. Main St., in Darlington. A longtime favorite restaurant, Lindbergh’s was founded over 30 years ago by Mr. Lindbergh Dargan who passed away on June 6, 2020.
During those decades, Mr. Dargan served his delicious food to countless numbers of local citizens as well as tourists travelling through our city. Most locals knew what you were talking about when you mentioned Lindbergh’s. Widely known for his pit-cooked barbeque, Mr. Dargan developed a well-deserved reputation as a fine cook and pitmaster.
Since his passing, his sister, Denise Dargan Stanley, has taken up the mantle. She is the new owner and has done significant remodeling and renovations to the business. When asked if he passed on his secret recipe to her, Mrs. Stanley said, “Yes, he sure did!”
Mrs. Stanley thanked all the people who had helped her with the endeavor. “This came about in several different stages and I would like to thank everyone who helped with each stage of this,” Mrs. Stanley said. From family to bank representatives, city government officials and city council members, Mrs. Stanley expressed her sincere thanks to everyone who had any part in the venture. She is assisted in the business by her sons and other members of her family. Lindbergh’s Southern Cooking is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. most days, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
