The Rancho Snack Bar was on the corner of Treat and Pembroke, located halfway between Cowell and Clayton Road. It was torn down in 1973 to make room for the widening of Treat. Also several homes facing Treat were torn down. A piece of trivia, the Contra Costa Mobile library truck would stop there every 2 weeks and set up shop in the parking lot of the snack bar.
Special thanks to RADAR, who originally sent these pictures to the Mayor of Claycord, and then allowed me to post them on this site.
