I always went to Daly #9 at Plymouth and Burt Road in Detroit. Man, I loved the Daly Burger and Fries.
Wish I had one right now!

In the 70's I used to go bowling at Livonia Lanes and then head over to Daly's for a snack. Usually their yummy french fries!

Like Paula of Adrian,I used to go to the Daly's in Westland on Wayne Rd. I also went to the one
in Plymouth, the one with the
fireplace. Such great memories.
I now live in Blissfield near Adrian (and Paula). Like her I
wish we had a Daly's here in Lenawee county. Glad to know there is still one open. I'll see you there soon!

We used to go to the Dalys in Dearborn every night after church and enjoy great company and great food. My favorite is cheeseburger with just ketchup, a salad with italian dressing and a large cherry coke. What great memories

We used to go to the original Daly's in Dearborn Hgts. when I was a small child. I fondly remember eating footlongs and medium shakes. My dad used to go there as a child with my grandpa. We moved to Plymouth in 1996 and went to the one on Main St./ Ann Arbor Rd. until it closed. We also went to the one on Wayne Rd. as well. When I went away for college I always went to Daly's when I came home as much as I could. Now I go with my family every chance I get. But I get a Jr. hotdog and a small shake now.

As a child my grandparents took me to the Daly Drive in and I have wonderful memories of it. As an adult I am going to make new memories there with my children. I am thankful for my grand parents and the memories I have of the Daly Drive in. thank you

I met my husband at Daly's back in 1967. We have been married almost 44 years and drop by there to eat once in a while. We have good memories of Daly's. Love their Chile Cheese Burger.

My mom and I used to make late night runs to the Daly's in Wayne whenever she had a craving for a banana split. Yum...

Those were the good old days, at Daly on Wayne Rd., Westland and the Dalyburger and chili fries. Now that location is a coney place, sure does not compare. I now go to the Plymouth & Merriman location. It's all there is.

While taking in the sights and sounds of Dream Cruise week on Woodward, our discussion turned to the various drive-ins we cruised back in the early sixties while dating our future wives. Lo and behold, we discovered our favorite place to stop and actually eat was at a Daly's Drive-in. However,two of us cruised the west side Daly's on Plymouth Rd. and the others an east side Daly's on Groesbeck. We decided that the seven of us would make a pilgrimage on Wednesday 8-24 11 to the last remaining Daly's. Since we are coming from Sterling Heights, Shelby Township and Romeo, Daly's became a day trip for us. The consensus was that the Daly burger and the Daly dog tasted exactly as remembered. Going to Daly's the Wednesday after Dream Cruise is now permanently on our calendars.

Born in Plymouth, I grew up at Daly's until I moved away at the age of 6. I learned how to use a straw at Daly's on a strawberry shake. Up until 5 years ago when my mother sold off my grandmother's property, she still went back throughout the years. My mom was the lady who came in with the jumbo cooler and the tin foil rolls and had you fill it up with Chee Chee burgers to take back to the burbs of Chicago.

Been eating Daly Burgers since the mid-1960s, usually at the Dalys on Plymouth Road just west of Merriman in Livonia. In high school (1965-66), we used to hang out at Dalys (the drive-in part), and cruise from there down Plymouth Road one mile to the Big Boy's (at Plymouth & Farmington) and make the loop. Have eaten at the eastside Daly's, the one out in Plymouth and the one near Rouge Park and the original one on Beech-Daly. My wife & I still like their original burgers with the steamed bun and the ketchup-relish sauce. Glad there's still one Daly's left -- my old high school hangout, at Plymouth & Merriman.

My mother, Mariann Whaling worked at Daly 1 and brought me on board there when I was 13. Roughly about 1970. I later went on to work at Daly 7, in Romulus in the mid 70's. Oh, the memories! My kids grew to love the food just as much as we did. We now live in Tennessee and greatly miss it! No one has a Dalyburger or Daly Footlong!

Daly had a drive in location in Plymouth Michigan on the corner of Main Street and Ann Arbor Road that my family use to eat at. We loved many items on the menu but our all time favorite was the "Hamdinger"! I would love to have one again. Is it possible to get the special sauce recipe?

My mom and sisters use to take me to Daly's on W. Warren in Dearborn after school. I was in elementary school at Koscisuko Elementary back in the late 1960's. After they we moved to Westland where I went to the Daly's on Wayne Road. I have also been to the one in Livonia, and frequented the one on Greenfield near Joy Road where I use to work.

I live in FL now, and would give just about anything for a Double Dalyburger.

My husband and I used to go to the Daly's on Wayne Road when we were dating (1970-1974). Then after getting married and pregnant (1975) I craved Daly burgers and root beer floats with chocolate ice cream daily. Did'nt eat them that often but sure wanted to. Now we go to the one on Plymouth Road in Livonia and to this day I still order the Daly burger. Some things never change.

I grew up four blocks from Daly's Drive on Wayne Rd. Chee Chee burger is the best and the chili fries. My whole family ate there once a week. My dad would park then sometimes the speaker wouldn't work, Dad would be angry but pull to another spot we would all laugh. Then after our two trays of food it was forgotten. Many great memories at Daly's...

I crave a Daly Burger often! Wish it wasn't such a long drive to Livonia from Springfield MO, I'd get a Daly Burger now. Wonderful to see they are still open after all these years.
