Smyrna: Dining in Delaware

Though the old stainless-steel trailer has been gone several years, Smyrna Diner (99 S. Cory Lane, 653-9980) remains a landmark. It is both a way point for visitors headed to the beaches and a true everyday hometown eatery. That means a bright space with cheerful servers and a menu full of diner classics: meatloaf, baked chicken and breakfast all day. The Boondocks (825 Lighthouse Road, 653-6962), famous for a libation called Swampwater, also remains a favorite. Nautical decor creates the perfect mood for passing around a bucket of wings or a bushel of steamed crabs.
