Nothing for carry out - there wasnt any service to speak of. A buck or two per plate in a buffet.

Re: How much do you tip for carry-out or a buffet?

I don't tip for carry-out. But we have a few places that have "Carside To Go". You call in your order and tell them your car model and color. When you get there you park and they come out and get your charge card or cash and then bring your order to your car. For that we tip $2-$3.

A couple of bucks for the buffet if they bring drinks and refills, otherwise a dollar for the person who cleans up the tables.
