What should I tip? It's that age old question that crosses your mind each time you look at the check at the end of a meal. There are so many variables that go into answering this question. I've asked around to get a sense of what people think about tipping, and I've learned that there are strong opinions on the subject. Most 'tip logic" is based on a firmly-held, socially-acceptable standard percentage of the check, the service expected from the location, and the experience as a whole. However, ultimately it really comes down to what you, the customer, want to do.
