Do you tip on "pick up" orders in restaurants now?

Dine in 20-25% lmao. Poor service 0-10, good 15, great 18-20.

I usually tip $1-2 when I pick food up. That’s pretty good for the 2 minutes they spend writing my order down and handing it to me.

I delivered food for a minute. That needs to be 15-25% considering the wear and tear in your car.

$1 - $2 max.

over it.

I tipped at the normal sit down rate when takeout was the only real option.  I live where we’ve been back to normal for quite some time now so it hasn’t been a factor for a bit here.

I get takeout pretty much exclusively from local places where I know the owner. I always tip on takeout now. The restaurant biz is always brutal, but now it's like Justin Gaethje.

I have always said that tipping practices in the USA is a weird combo of shame and bragging at the same time.

It’s hard for people outside the USA to understand because it’s so built into your system and been that way for a long time.

Whenever I eat at a restaurant, if the service is good, I’ll just dump my wallet on the table. If the service is bad, I still dump my wallet on the table but I give the waitstaff a really passive aggressive “Thanks for everything.” on the way out. Like I say thanks, and that’s what people hear, but its not what I mean.

no

pressure workers to advocate for normalcy 

Only if that takeout chicks got it goin on kno what I’m sayin?

Nope. I don’t even tip my Uber Eats delivery person.

Always (25% or more) given that many restaurants are almost entirely reliant on carry-out now.

Yes but only 10%, 15% if i really like them.  5% less than usual i guess.

$2-3 if I pick it up. $4-5 for delivery depending on how far of a drive they have. 15-20 percent based on service if I eat there in person.

if you handle my food in any way and there is a way to tip, I’m tipping.

I am now tipping 15% on pickup and 30% on eat-in and delivery, just because I know restaurant owners and waitstaff are in some deep shit right now, and I want them to survive.

A waiter will:

  1.  Take your drink order
  2.   bring your drinks
  3.  take your order for appetizers
  4.   bring the appetizers
  5.   Take your orders for the main course
  6.   Bring the main course to your table
  7.   Ask if everything is ok and will bring it back to the cook if there needs to be a correction
  8.   refills drinks
  9.   takes orders for desert
  10.   brings desert
  11.   take everyones money and credit cards to pay off the bills
A person giving you your pick up order will:
  1.   charge your credit card for the order.
I don't give them anything under normal circumstances.   But I will tip until covid blows over.
 

I have always tipped 20% to businesses dine in or take out, but lately I only tip if I feel they deserve a tip.  Most workers I’ve seen lately are extremely fucking rude and very ungrateful they still have jobs.

Holy shit, I LOLed

so true 

They seem to expect it more now.. If I pay cash I’ll leave the change, but if it’s card, never

"A person giving you your pick up order will:

  charge your credit card for the order."

Tips are often grouped into one pile at the end of the day and split up among all staff.

I've heard some places do that.  However, as a customer I am paying an additional amount based off the services provided.  Under normal, non covid circumstances, running my credit card does not warrant a tip
