Do you tip the servers when you only get takeout?
If you stop by a restaurant and get a to-go order, are you supposed to tip the person who took and submitted your order, even though it is to-go?
I don't know if one is supposed to tip in that scenario, but I don't .
I believe in tipping if someone waits on me at a table setting and provides good service for the entire meal.
I don't tip when I get a to-go order. I think the space for tip is on the receipt because they use the same receipt for those who dine in. Besides, if a take-out customer is really generous and wants to give a tip, it's made easy for them
A good practice I've learned from others (including a restaurant owner) is to draw a horizontal line in the space for tip when you're not leaving a tip and write the total amount at the bottom. This also applies when you're dining in and prefer to leave the tip on the table in cash, but pay for your food with a credit card.
If I feel the service was exceptionally friendly or fast, or if it's a place I go a lot, I do - just because I think it would probably make them feel good to be recognized with a small gratuity, but I don't do the percentage like a sit-down or pizza delivery, I just add a dollar or two and round up the change - but I think it is a matter of personal preference in this situation.
I think it depends on the restaurant. No if it's McDonadls or some other fast food chain. But if I pick up a pizza, I usually tip a couple of dollars, same as if the person delivers one. Another place I might tip if I take a to-go order is Cracker Barrel. However, I always have a sit down meal. I am not sure if there is any etiquette about tipping for to-go orders. I think maybe it is a preference and how well they serve you,
I'm not sure if you are SUPPOSED to tip for a to go order, but I normally do not. There isn't a server getting drinks and running back and forth checking to see how you are doing.
