When picking up an order to go, do you tip?



They print out a receipt to sign and it has the spot to fill in for the tip.
I always feel obligated to tip. I tip usually 10% for a pick up order and 20% if I sit in and eat.

I've heard people say they don't tip at all for a to-go order.

If I tip, it's to someone super nice. Otherwise, nope.

I tip at least 20% for sit-down meals.

I only tip when I have an actual waiter. if I am ordering at a counter and getting my own drinks, utensils, etc. then I don't tip. definitely don't for a take out order, I am paying for only the food in that situation, not for the service or atmosphere.

Hell yes. Always at least a couple bucks.


I'm not poor trash, though.

The worst is at hair/massage places when they ask "Do you want to close out at $____?" with the person who did your hair/massage standing right there.

I try to always tip $2 at minimum. Those people don't make that much.

If they bring it to my car (I don't eat at chains so this is rare) I will tip more. Or if they are nice or something.

I wish I could tip good cooks. Back of the house never gets the credit they deserve./

I'm more likely to tip the carhop at Sonic than the chick sitting on her arse at the Chili's To Go window waiting for me to drive through.

The main exception I've made before was when a restaurant did me a favor with a to-go order when it was supposed to be a dine-in only place. I tipped them as if I dined in on that occasion.

For a to go order, never.

And I eat to go orders every day, sometimes twice a day. Place I eat lunch at 2-3 days a week has that tip line when I am just picking up food and I never tip.

You're giving them business and all they're doing is taking your $ and handing you the order.....so no

If it's a sit down place that has a to go section with a tip jar.. no..

If its a sit down place where someone brings my food out to my truck... depends on the attitude of the person on the phone and the person who gofers to my truck... usually $5 because that person is hourly anyway.. their salary does not depend on tips.
