I was born and raised in Livonia. Before the coming of age on my 16th birthday, my parents took my sister and I to the Livonia location for dinner on a frequent basis for years. I loved the foot long hot dog and don’t think I ever had any other entre’. I remember the Daly Double and the board on the wall. Way out of my league. In September 1965, I got my driver license. I do not think I ever went again with my parents. I cannot count how many nights I spent at the drive-inn. It started with a 58 Impala, a 66 Falcon, a 61 Impala convertible, and finally my 67 Charger. I can recall many nights with friends, before or after, we went drag racing on Telegraph. Daly was the symbol of great food, hot cars and hot girlfriends in 1960's Livonia. BTW, I have tried for years to duplicate the hot dog chili sauce to no avail.
