Danny’s Drive In has been a local staple since 1947. Current owner, Missy Targowski, convinced her parents, George and Terry Benedetto, to buy Danny's in 1981 when she was 10 years old. "Inside the window, there was this sign that said it was for sale and I told them they had to buy Danny's Drive-In." Missy used to eat Danny's cheeseburgers after Saturday practices at nearby Polly's Gymnastics. The Pagliaro family bought the eatery in 1947 and ran Danny's for 34 years before Missy’s parents bought it. WHAT’S YOUR FAVE THING TO GET AT DANNY’S?!?
