View Full Version : Not enough or Too much?

Polling question:
You have just checked off your second last item from your to do list at your local fish store...woohooo! BUT you have one more thing to do, you are going to a restaurant nearby to pick up some take-out food you ordered. Whenever you eat in the restaurant you always leave a generous tip, but should you also feel obligated to leave a tip when your driving to the restaurant to pick up an order where no table service was needed?

I always tip when dining in, just thought this was interesting and plays into the post.

Depends - if it's an owner operator restaurant I wouldn't tip but if it is a staffed restaurant I leave a couple bucks.

I would say no but lot's of places expects it. If I don't get any service I don't feel obligated to tip.

I don't tip when I pick up my food....but when I dine in or have delivery I tip.

As someone who worked in the service industry for quite a few years in my 20's (anduccis) if you expect a tip for pick up, you're just being greedy.

I don't think most places expect a tip for pick up at all.

If anything, leave 2-4% to cover the tip out to the kitchen/bar.

Anymore than that and you're generous.
