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.

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!

44 Years today, and you guessed it, another trip to Daly Drive-in . Oh Yes, we visit more than once a year.

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 "=)

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.
