Daly's opened in 1948. Since then, many people have built fond memories in one or more of our 19 restaurants. See other people's memories here. Share your memories with us by clicking the share button.




My Dad owned a Sunoco gas station on Telegraph Rd by Michigan Ave at Oxford st in the 70's there was a Daly's on northbound Telegraph just before Michigan Ave. I spent a lot of time there for lunch, great burgers!! also there was one on Beech Daly rd & one on Wayne rd in Westland too. I live up north now, but when I come down I always make a stop at Daly's In Livonia. Its too bad all the others are gone now I hope this one stays open for ever! Best food out there!

Grew up in Detroit off Warren Ave near Southfield. We had more than our share of drive-ins back then. Along with Dalys we had an A&W's and another place called Robertsons. Each with their own kind of food & all within a mile of each other. Teenagers dream. Living in Az. now but when I go back I stop at Dalys.

My father Frank and his brother Ellis owned 4 of the stores through the sixties, seventies & eighties. My uncle James Blair owned the store next to the Roller drome on Warren. Ellis owned the store across near Redford High. My Father owned three stores. #14 in Redford 5 mile & Summner, #9 at Plymouth & Burt and #12 on Ecorse in Taylor. I worked in & enjoyed them all of my young life. Many good memories and even more good meals. I just can not imagine the detroit metro area without them.

Mr Grace managed our hockey team and he used to take the whole team there after games. We had so much fun there.

I lived on Colgate street near Jim(Beech)Daly in the late 50's. After getting out of the Air Force in 1964, I drove my dark blue '55 Ford up to Daly's on Beech Daly RD. I soon got a '62 Maroon HIPO Pontiac Catalina and several of us would leave Daly's and head out to Metro Airport side roads and do some great drag racing and then head back to Daly's to brag about it. I bought a new '66 Nassau Blue Corvette Convertible and lived up at Daly's. Many of my Daly friends are still my close friends, even to this day! Daly's was the cool place to hang out and marvel at all the cool cars coming in and out everynight. I really miss Daly's even to this day!

As a young lad in the very early sixties, we would pool our money together and after a winter of skating and sledding at Rouge Park we would stop at the Daly's on Warren and Outer Drive. Burgers, fries, hot choc. and a Daly's Banana split. mmmmm

I met my wife, Handy Dandy Sandy, at the Beech Daly Drive-In. July 31st, 2012 was our 47th Anniversary. It was Sandy's first visit for lunch to the Daly when she was working at Turchin Machine on Van Born Rd. At the time, we both had 57 Chevy's and the rest is history.

Does anyone remember the Daly next to the "roller drome" on Warren Ave??? DBNHGTS I believe. Used to go to a skate party almost every weekend in the mid - late 70's, and finished the night off next door at Daly's!! the burgers were the best and the footlongs only rivaled by A&W. Would love to buy the "daly sauce" if anyone know's were to get it, or a recipe..Thanks

My friends and I used to cruise alot of the Dalys on Fridays and Saturdays (mostly looking for a parking spot)! Even though a spot was hard to find in the late 60's once in a while after playing musical cars you'd get one. I took my wife there when we were dating and now she's another devoted fan. Please don't close Livonia !!! There are NO other burgers like it on the planet.

I grew up in Livonia in the 60's and my grandmother lived in Detroit, so we had many wonderful times at the Livonia and the Grand River Daly's. Of course I loved the Dalyburger, but my special favorite thing was the vegetable soup. A trip to Daly's was not complete without it. And of course, there were the wonderful sundaes - my favorite was a marshmallow sundae with chocolate ice cream. Never since then have I tasted such good marshmallow sauce or such creamy delicious chocolate ice cream.

grew up on Daly's in Westland. chee chee burgers were the best. Used to hang out in the back row with a cherry coke waiting for someone to drag, used to roll up Wayne Rd. and it was on once you passed Ford Road. Man, the memories, the good times, the great shakes and burgers. Will be back next month to visit, gotta have a daly dog and a chee chee if they'll make me one!

James K. Warunek

I grew up on Eton and Fellrath - around the corner from both the old and new #1 locations. My dad, Stanley (Stash) Warunek was the maintenance man and janitor there for several years...started at the old location first, then moved over to the new one on the corner of Pennie and Powers and Beech Daly. I worked at The Donut Hut next door to the new #1 location and used to help dad with his chores after mine were done...also had a Free Press and Heights Journal paper route while attending Robichaud (1969 Grad). This all led to a successful sideline business as a janitor service and mobile locksmith business dad and I jointly owned. I still frequent the Livonia location often.

I can remember going to the Daly's on Beech Daly with my family when I was little. Everything was delicious! When I bowled out in Canton at the Superbowl, there was a Daly's inside of the bowling alley. Me and my cousins would always get frys and drinks for a snack. Fun memories! It's a shame that there is only one left. WE NEED MORE!!!

This would have been the late 60's and early 70's. After every Sunday evening service, it seemed the entire congregation of Mom's church found it's way to Daly's on Beech Daly. I remember vividly giant flying saucer sized platters of onion rings and Daly burgers. I was never able to talk Mom into letting me order the Daly-Double ice cream thing. Bear in mind, I was only six. One of these days when I head back to the Detroit area to visit, I'll head to the one that's left in Livonia and order one -that's if they still have it.

'64 - '65 hanging out at the Telegraph Rd. Daly's, six or seven crammed into Dippy Bob's '61 Chevy...the "Cheese-and Chilli" (now called the Chee-Chee)were our favorite.
