Should We Be Tipping Restaurants For Takeout Orders?

Posted: Oct 25, 2018



For call-in, online and to-go orders, where I have to drive out and pick up the food I find myself in a grey zone.

I’ve always wondered about tipping on a takeout order.

Whenever I dine out, I stick to 20 percent. For delivery, I always tip—resonating back to my pizza boy days. The problem, however, lies in takeout.

For call-in, online and to-go orders, where I have to drive out and pick up the food I find myself in a grey zone. Tipping for me has always been about the quality of the restaurant dining experience or an employee braving traffic to bring me food. When I go pick up a pizza, my human interaction becomes drastically limited leaving me to wonder if I need to tip at all.

Frankly, I still do tip for take-out—although not as high as 15 percent. It’s more like a couple bucks here and there just so the tip jar on the counter isn’t empty.

Curious to see if any of my co-workers faced this dilemma, I asked around the office to see if anyone would be willing to share their experiences when it came to takeout orders.
