Tip well if you intend to go back. There are none so foolish as those who treat the people who bring their food with disrespect and THEN think they are going to get good service. (or edible food)

littlecynicism has it right, if you can't afford a tip you can't afford to eat out.

I live in a country where people are actually paid to do their jobs and tipping doesn't happen. When I visited America I couldn't believe the rudeness of people who expected *me* to pay them for doing their jobs, especially when doing their job yourself (like a waitress) wasn't an option.

Now, of course, I know better. :D Is the intention to ensure good customer service by making their wages reliant on their efforts? Or just a money-saving trick that employers can't believe their customers actually support them in?

Considering waitresses only make about three bucks an hour because they're salary is based on tips I think 15-20% tip on average is fair. I always try to give something, even when I was a younger and had to scrape enough money to go out to a cheap dinner. I'm sure I'm one of the few people who tip delivery drivers.

It's 15% kids. If you can't afford 15% you can't afford to eat out.

I tip 15% for average service, 20% for really good service, more if I think they could use it or look like they're trying hard but still having a hard night. But 15% is standard.
