Big Tipper.

Allow me to start off by saying that I always leave twenty percent everywhere I go. Unless the server threw my food at me, I cannot leave less. Maybe it is the years of friends who were servers or my sister who currently is in college and is a server. Or perhaps it is the films ‘Waiting…’ and ‘Still Waiting…’ that left an impression on me. Whatever the case may be, my infatuation of signage grew a bit more today when I spotted this tiny sign way above head at a local Tony Roma's . I know this rule exists at other establishments, I had just never seen it posted as you walk in before. Cheers.

Interesting picture... I hate when tipps are not included in the price.

I'm going to go bad on this one. Don't mind tipping, Don't really know how it started. But one thing that turns me totally bad, is a bad meal (bad salad,cold food, bad service and a sign that TELLS me what up front what I will pay) Please think about it!They are doing "Their JOB" What they were hired for!! I tip like I'm treated, fed and served "Not Because of A Sign". My opinion. cd

Interesting theme! In HK most of the restaurant no matter how many person you are, they charge you 10% for the service. Also that, there also Tony Roma's in HK, may be you can check it out, is there any different taste in between, ha! ha!

Great shot!
On my last night at home in April, 7 of us went out to eat and I didn't pay attention when I payed the bill ( too much wine!!) so my waiter got 18% that was added plus the 20% that I left!! I didn't notice until the next day!!
I'm sure he was happy!! :))

Interesting capture...
My daughter worked as a server when she was in high school and said that she got the worst tips from bigger groups.

Unusual percentage. Why 18% and not 15% or 20%? I guess they have their reasons. Personally I can never quite get my head around tipping, why don't they just charge the full rate for the meal including service ?
