Donnie Wahlberg leaves $2,000 tip at Charlotte Waffle House
Employees at a Charlotte, N.C., Waffle House got quite the surprise late Wednesday night.
Donnie Wahlberg, New Kids on the Block member and "Blue Bloods" actor was so happy with the service during a trip to Waffle House that he decided to leave the waitresses a $2,000 tip.
Wahlberg posted a photo of him smiling with six staff members of the Queen City Waffle House in Charlotte while holding up a receipt that showed his $2,000 tip on an $82.60 tab.
"My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars-- for years!" Wahlberg wrote in the post. "So, when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens! Thanks to the team at @wafflehouseofficial Charlotte, NC! "
The celebrity also posted a nearly 12-minute video of his visit on his Facebook page.
The Charlotte Observer reported that Wahlberg is in town for the New Kids on the Block concert Thursday night at the Spectrum Center in uptown Charlotte.
