Alright Im a waiter at EL Chico's and I got in an argument with one of my friends about tiping, he says that everyone always tips 10-15% of the bill, what do u do?
I tip depending on the waiter. take for instance last nice, me and the girlfriend were eating at shoney's bill was 24.84. The waitress was very nice to us, and always kept my drink filled, big plus in my book. SO I tipped her 5.16 to make it an even 30 bucks for the bill. That comes out to be a 17.2% tip. I have tipped as much as 30%, and I have tipped as little as zero before. But if you are good at what you do, I know you are working hard for tips, believe me, I have done valet and waited tables, and you bust your ass...so I can sympathize somewhat.RapThaTachNWH said:Alright Im a waiter at EL Chico's and I got in an argument with one of my friends about tiping, he says that everyone always tips 10-15% of the bill, what do u do?
Everywhere I have found online says 15-20% Sam. My roommate has been working as a waiter for about 5 years and currently is a shift leader at Ruby Tuesday here in Memphis and he has never said 20%. Maybe you are used to it where you are at or would like 20% but fact is in places like Memphis you would be grateful for 15%. I know the tip systems are screwed up but again I have never heard anyone but you say 20% is the industry standard.since the roaring 20's ended
