Seriously? I didn't know if you were suppose to tip or not. Something the announcer said when we were there made me think you were suppose to but then NOBODY that I saw left a tip and we were at the end of the aisle so we walked all the way down and I didn't see any tips. So, I didn't know if they were suppose to be tipped or not. I do know one thing, I LOVE their soup.

Try to hand it to your server. The wait staff is like any other restaurant. The base pay handles taxes and uniforms and the real pay comes from tips. Leaving a tip on the table is subject to "sticky fingers".

as a former server there I can tell u the answer is yes.. Servers there are paid 2.13 per hour.. Thanks for asking..
I still have many friends and even my own son that is a server and they solely depend on tips.. It's just the same ad if you were dining at olive garden, Fridays, red lobster etc. U are getting full service. Unfortunately many people think that the servers are apart of the show and are making big bucks.. Wen I wrkd there I tryed so hard with no luck, to get the tip card and the announcers announcement revised..

I worked at Dixie stampede so 7 years as a server. all servers there make $2.30 an hour. there's a card on the table that says "excellent service is typically rewarded with 15%.$50 a ticket and 15% of $50 =$7.50 PER PERSON. so the idiot that leaves $5 for a whole family...?? selfish and rude. the servers there work their butts off for hours and hours a day, and that's why they make so much money. because a lot of people notice their hard work.

If there is a tip card in front of me & the emcee tells me to reward my server, I am going to tip at least 15%(which varies depending on where you're sitting), and more if my server was excellent. They have some of the best servers in the area, so I will probably tip 20%. These people work their butts off & it is hard to put on a happy face when you're pouring sweat & trying to catch your breath. The people they have to deal with are sometimes ridiculous. And always remember, KARMA is not something you can hide from. If you're thinking about leaving $5 for any number of people, I promise it will come back to bite you in the rear somehow.
