I just picked up some sushi takeout.

My bill was $59 and change (very hungry coupled with sushi = large bill for 2 people) :shrugs


How much would you tip the person who took your order/bagged everything up etc?

I recieved good/slightly above average service.

Remember its takeout not delivery.



I'll let you know what I tipped after I get some responses.

I wouldn't tip anything unless they took everything out of the bag, showed you your order and then bagged it back up while in front of you. If they did that and were cordial, I'd probably go ~3 dollars.

No different then someone at McDonald's.

Tipping is something I'm very opinionated on. Good topic.

no tip then.

i went to a restaurant in NYC called The Cottage....and the Asian waitress had hairy armpits. Then the kicker was I found a curly pube in my food...I was like this place is way to authentic for me and left no tip no nothing. :barf :lol

I do not tip for takeout. I figure if I opted to pickup the order myself and not use the delivery service, they should tip me :lol

On the real though I never tip takeout, only delivery. Like Fox said it really is no different then walking into McDonalds and ordering a Big Mac.

I never tip for takeout. The same reason you shouldn't tip at starbucks or wendys. Its part of their job. If they were serving you like at a restaurant or bring it to your house (delivery) then you tip then.

I tip on takeout orders regularly. It's money well spent.
I give the girl at my pizza joint a buck, but my pizza is always exactly as I like it. Well-done, crisp, but not DOA.
I give the guy at the deli a buck. I get back a sandwich that's enough to feed an African family for a week.

Usually $1 or $2 but I don't think I've ever had a $60 take out order. I would feel strange tipping $2 on a $60 bill so maybe I wopuld give more but not sure.

60 bucks on something like Sushi;which is not a typical takeout food; I'd tip 5 bucks, unless it was a weekend at a busy time I'd probably go 6-10 dollars if the service was quick and above average.

If you had to give the takeout girl the money I would have given her exact bills and told her to keep the change. After all it is her job to bring it out the food its not like shes going to extraordinary measures for you.

I don't usually tip for Chinese takeout.


But that's different from your Applebee's Carside to go, you are supposed to tip those kids.
