My wife asked me what the protocol was for takeout tipping. We usually tip 10% for takeout, and 20% for dining. Are we too cheap? Pretty much believe 20% is standard but not sure what most people tip on takeout.
You mean you order and then pick it up and you are then out the door? Tip=zero.
I have tipped for carry out and at fast food restaurants too.
It is amazing how the level of future service improves. I become a friend, not just a guy with a gun on his hip.
The cooks often get a portion of the tips at the end of the day. Probably in most cases the tip goes to the cooks for takeout. Though a lot of people do not give tips, even to good wait staff. We will probably stick with 10%, I was just curious what others give, for you that is nothing. Bet they just love you.
Most times the food is really good for us to get takeout, so IMO it is worth a tip.
