You weighed in: How much do people in Atlanta like to tip?

Atlantans are generous tippers, that’s for sure.

According to the poll “ How much should you tip your server? ” the “right” amount is 18 – 20 percent, which a whopping 253 people voted for. Still sticking with the generosity theme was 20 – 25 percent, which came in second place (158 votes). Following was 15 – 18 percent (102 votes) and “Other” (18 votes). Unsurprisingly, “None” was the least favorite choice (11 votes).

So, what can we learn from this? A person should tip according to preference, not pressure. A tip—whether large or small—is almost always dependent on good service, food, atmosphere and what your pockets can afford.
