About Us And Our Food

The Ranch Wagon was founded by Allan Roberts Sr., in 1955 when he was just 16 years old!  Talk about a visionary!  He worked with his parents and family to establish a part time summer job that would provide the food he loved to the Back Mountain community (Dallas, Shavertown, Trucksville, Lake Lehman, Harvey’s Lake, Etc.)  But it became much more than that.  Over the years the little “wagon” grew and grew and the people came from miles around to taste the best darn long hot dogs, bar-b-ques, and burgers anywhere! The location of the “wagon” changed several times until its present location on Rt. 309 in Shavertown.  Now under the ownership and management of Allan Roberts, Jr., and his wife Barbara, this family affair has developed into a love affair with food and customers, friends and local businesses.
