Yes, Smitty's was on the right as you left the base and headed towards Mercury Blvd. Probably a mile or so from the end of the gate bridge. A drive-in with car hops. They had classic car nights and great food.
Our townhouse was on Olde Buckingham across the street from a 7-11. There was a local bar across from us too. Tee-Bears-Two was the name. Very odd name which is why I remember it.
