Chow Daly’s Drive-In Disappearing?
posted by August 31 at 11:53 AMon
Daly’s Drive-In—which has the best view of any burger joint in town—may be closing. According to a Daly’s staff member, the lot which Daly’s has occupied since 1962 was recently purchased by a developer, who plans to turn the property into an office building.
Daly’s lease is up in January and the owners haven’t decided whether they’ll relocate.
Unfortunately, their location is part of the charm, as they’re right on Eastlake and it more or less overlooks the water. At least I think it does. I haven’t been there in awhile.
Years ago, I got dragged to Daly’s (which isn’t actually a drive-in) by a friend who swore up and down that they had the best fish and chips in Seattle. They don’t, but they’re still pretty good and I’ve gone back a few times since. I’m a big fan of the Daly Double. It’s delicious, but my heart hurts a little bit just from thinking about it.
