Peggy’s Restaurant

We’re putting together the information that will go on this page. Suffice it to say that it will be a memorial page to Peggy’s Restaurant, which Mama Peggy and her sister, Loretta Chaney, ran for over two decades. If you lived in Kings Mountain, North Carolina during the mid 1970’s to the late 1990’s, you probably heard of Peggy’s Restaurant. Heck, you probably ate there at least once. Peggy’s Restaurant was one of those gems that was treasured locally, and is still talked about fondly by those who remember it.



"As you can see! Loretta didn't like her picture made either!That's beef Liver she's taking out! Getting ready for Peggy to throw in that old frying pan!!!!" ~ Mama Peggy, May 21, 2010"Loretta was a little upset over something here!She had the most beautiful big black eyes! She wasn't mouthy like the rest of us Chaney girls but she had a wicked sense of humor! She could stop you in your tracks with some of her crazy comments! I still miss her so much! We were like we were joined at the hip most of our lives!" ~ Mama Peggy, May 21, 2010 Sherry Chaney, Loyd Short and Loretta Chaney. "I wonder! Did they put iced tea in those funny shaped bottles?" ~ Mama Peggy, May 21, 2010
"This is Sue, probably getting ready to pick the meat off of about 10 chickens! I used them for chicken amd dumplings,one of our best sellers. Bless her heart! I was so picky, i didn't want any veins or anything left in the chicken I used! She complained a little but not much!" ~ Mama Peggy, May 21, 2010 "There is 'Sis' as we all called her because she always hated her name! It was Doretha and she would fight you if you called her that!She had had a stroke but lived just a little ways behimd the restaurant! Every day she would come up there and sit at the counter and talk to the customers! She loved it! I would turn around and look at her as I was always flying around like a chicken with my head cut off! We would instantly burst out laughing! It was a 'sister' thing! I miss her too! She was the "thinker" in our family!" ~ Mama Peggy, May 21, 2010 "We all loved Ollie! He would come in and make himself at home( Because he felt at home) Take refills around the tables to customers and just talk to them! He came to our family dinners at Christmas and Thansgiving ! We would send plates to Miss Abby,his wife! I miss Ollie to this day! He was a great Senator and personal friend of Peggy's Restaurant." ~ Mama Peggy, May 21, 2010 "Our angel sister Edith and Ol' chubby chaney standing behind her ,as usual , a pan in her hand!" ~ Mama Peggy, May 21, 2010 "Just look at that mischief in Sherry's eyes! She had just took her arms and lifted up her bosom (for meanness as we used to say way back when we were young) Lib Stuart from the K.M.Herald snapped the picture and caught her just as she did that! Since her stroke ,she's doing quite well but the mischievousness is missing! I miss that part of her so much!" ~ Mama Peggy, May 21, 2010 "I always had my hands in something! I still don't like for anyone to slip and take my picture!" ~ Mama, Peggy, May 21, 2010 "I wonder how many biscuits Mama Peggy made over 20+ years at Peggy's Restaurant?" ~ Mama Peggy, February 14, 2011Lucille Chaney Gladden at the original restaurant.
