Loved cruising the Daly's in Plymouth in early 1960's. Ate the Pig's Dinner there and got my name in the book. I wonder whatever happened to the book? I didn't eat any ice cream for months after that.

I grew up with Daly's I have visited every location, however I lived in Plymouth and visited the Daly's at Ann Arbor Road and Main Street many times a week from 1982 to 1987 until I joined the army. Cindy was almost always my waitress she always brought the coffee without having to be told that I wanted it, I remember Joyce a prep cook who just loved to visit with customers. Imagine my dismay when I return home in Nov of 2011 and there is a pharmacy where Daly's used to be. Many, Many memories there, I actually met Bob Segar there one day. Thank you Daly's for being a part of a great time in my life!

Used to hang out and cruise the Daly's at Joy and Greenfield. Met my wife there back in 1968 and are still happily married 45 yrs. Used to frequent the one at Plymouth and Bert road every once in awhile.

Went to the Dalys on Beech Daly Road all through my high school years at Robichaud in the late 1980s. Now I live In the Upper Peninsula. I thought that all of the Dalys were long gone (as Ernie would say!), but now knowing that one still remains, I hope to stop in for a Dalyburger the next time I head to the Detroit area!

I remember going to the Romulus restaurant with my mom and sister quite often. Mom worked until 9:00 PM every night and many times she was just too tired to cook dinner. Many of our family meals were spent there.

I'm from the East side and my Dad took me to the Plymouth and Merriman location a couple of times and it was great to see him come alive with the storys of him cruising with his buddies and picking up chicks...R.I.P Harold Thomas ( Tom ) Mckinney.

Grew up in Plymouth and the weekend was not a weekend, without gathering at the Plymouth Daly’s, I remember the old place, if you didn’t get there early you didn’t get a seat. I remember when they closed the dining room down for remodeling. And Ruby,(night head waitress) as if it were just yesterday, when she would threaten to throw us out, if we didn’t stop being so loud!! And on the couple occasions when she did, man those were the days, 1960’s thru 1970 but then in the 90’s I made a trip thru Plymouth and no more Daly’s, man glad to see there is still one left…

Back in the late 50's early 60's always went to Daly's on Greenfield & Joy rd., even when I worked at the drive in on Joy rd called TWIN GIRLS TWIN TOWERS. Nick the Greek owned it. They had eat in,drive in, carry out and delivery. But Daly's was the choice of all teen agers.Wish I was young again

My sister used to drive me up to the Daly's in Plymouth. We always liked hanging out there, I am still not sure why we didn't go to the one in Livonia, which is much closer. Great memories!

This was the BEST place to hang out, see and be seen. Robichaud HS alum still meet there. Miss the one on Beech Daly. We have to traipse all the way out to Livonia, but it's worth it.

I grew up in Plymouth so we were always at the Daly on Ann Arbor Rd and Main St. I was SO sad to see that one close, along with most others. The Livonia location better NEVER close!! What would we do without Daly??

Back in 1965 we used to cruise the Livonia daly's and make the rounds up to big boys. If the girls were scarce we made a trip to Plymouth daly's and hit the a&w to see what the action was there. Maybe even pick up a race along the way. Just stay away from the 396 chevelle's and mopars. The food was great and the girls were fun to try to pick up. Those were some fun years. Still cruise in canton ga with a 2007 shelby gt500. Once a kid always a kid . Now my wife goes with me and that ' s cool.

I lived on the east side. Every Friday picked up my girlfriend at Herman Gardens on Joy road. Would go straight to Daly's on Greenfield and stuff ourselves with burgers or coneys. I think we were hooked on that sauce. Loved it! Next stop was Ford Wyoming drive- in, to sometimes maybe, actually, watch the movie. Good times!

I skated for several years at the Dearborn Rollerdrome which was right next to a Daly restaurant. We usually went over there after skating and I would have one of their 5 scoop sundaes (those were the days). If it was winter I would follow that with a bowl of vegetable beef soup to warm me up before going out. I would love to hear from other skaters from that time who knew me.

Spend my teen years crusing Daly's and the other one down the street on Wayne Rd. which I can't remember the name but they had the best Momma, Pappa and Baby burgers!

I remember the Daly next to the "Rollerdrome" on Warren. I went to Ann Arbor Trail Elementary School not far from there. Every once in a while Mom would surprise us and be waiting in front of the school to take us to lunch at Daly's (this was when all the Mom's stayed home & we walked home for lunch). What a great memory and SO sad to see the Daly's disappearing!

Everytime I go back home the place I want to visit is
Dalys and have a chili dog. Why does something like this makes a trip to memorable. Though I have to say eating a chili dog in you car is better then a restaurant "=)
