Hard working employees at a Waffle House in Charlotte, North Carolina, got the dream tip that every server wishes they could have when actor and pop star Donnie Wahlberg stopped by to grab something to eat.
The 47-year-old “Blue Bloods” star chowed down at the chain restaurant on July 12, and he did an amazing thing and left a $2,000 tip on an $82.60 bill.
Wahlberg showed it off on his Instagram page next to an image of the receipt.
“My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars — for years! So, when I walk into a [Waffle House], and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens! Thanks to the team at [Waffle House] Charlotte, NC!”
The Instagram post has a healthy dose of 57,000 likes so far.
The New Kids on the Block performer also gave the staff front row tickets and backstage passes to an approaching concert on the band’s Total Package Tour, which also includes crowd favorites Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul.
While he was waiting on his meal, Wahlberg spoke to his friends and followers using Facebook Live.
“This Waffle House is happening. We need to come to Charlotte more often. This Waffle House is love. Everyone’s in a good mood in this Waffle House. Southern hospitality.”
“We’re just going to have to invite this whole Waffle House to the concert tomorrow.” He then proceeds asking individual workers if they would like to go to his concert, and jokingly encourages them to call off work.
To one waitress named Trina, he says:
“You gotta be sick [tomorrow]. We’re going to give you tickets. Everyone’s going.”
Another server named Jasmine was received extra tickets so that her mother could come along with her to the concert.
Wahlberg left that establishment after taking a photo with the crew: “Great crew at [Waffle House] in Edgewater MD! Thanks for the awesome service! Night Made!”
Nice guy, that Wahlberg is.
