  •  When we as a family go out we go local. (13+ / 0-)

    Down the street from us the types of restraunts are:

    Thai
    Japanese
    Pizza/Italian(true Italian)
    Ale House (English Pub food)
    Ethiopian
    Caribbean
    Old fashioned Lunch Counter (as in "Flo's" type)
    Mexican/TxMex
    Juice Bar
    Pho

    The only chains are Subway and Starbucks.

    OBTW I always leave a generous tip.  A bad day will be 15%, a good one will be 20-25%.  I know that the servers are all under paid and live off of tips.

    •  I would much rather over-tip than under-tip. (3+ / 0-)
      I know that the servers are all under paid and live off of tips.
      And those of us who have even been dependent on tips know this keenly.

      My philosophy is: There are worse things in life than being an extravagant tipper.  :-)

        When someone (usually my mother) criticizes me for overtipping... which I choose to do all the time, my response is:  "He or she needs that money more than I do..."

        Shuts them up every time.  My mother, unfortunately, has beginning Alzheimer's, so she forgets the response.
