Seriously, I want to know. I've come across people who do tip and those who don't! What do you do?

    Tipping at any fast food place is unnecessary. Delivering the food to you is part of the job. They do not take an order, refill your drink, bring you the food, clear your place or any of the other chores that wait staff do in a sit down restaurant. It drives me crazy when I go into a Baskin Robbins or the loacal donut shop and see a tip jar. Why should I tip someone for doing the job the are hired to do. Remember a tip is meant to insure proper service for the next time you come in and as recognition of job well done.

    But in the rare occasion that I ever eat there and have a large order, I'll let the person delivering the have an extra dollar or two for the trouble.
    But most of the time I just get a drink from Sonic, so it's not really necessary for me to give tip on something which only costs $1.29.

    Maybe a small tip if they bring it to my car and then come back for the trash otherwise no way.

    If the person is bringing my order to my parked car, then I do leave a small tip, not 20%. If I'm just driving through I do not tip. Their iced coffee's are great!

    Of course. They bring your food to your car. Didn't say you had to pay off their student loan or make a car payment. If a few extra bucks is going to break your bank, why are you eating out?

    I do not think so, I mean do you tip the person at BK or MD for putting your stuff in a bag or giving it to you at the drive through window. Sorry Juli not to be rude but a waiter or waitress "wait on you" and provide more service than simply bringing you the food. I do not tip because to me it is the same service as in BK, DQ or MD. (or any other fast food joint for that matter)

    Yes. The kids come to your car so are the same as a waiter.

    ah, maybe for the ones that come out to the car. I thought about the ones in the restaurant. I haven't gone to a car-tending one.

    That's all we have here. We don't have an "inside." I guess you can eat outside - never tried it.

    I ate at a Sonic in downtown Denver that only had a walk-in/sit-down.
