Lare's Mexican - automatic tip [moved from LA]

Love this place, food is always good and great prices. However, went there last night with 4 other people and when the bill came, they had already added on 20% tip. I usually tip at least 20% and actually feel that when restaurants automatically add in tip they are usually leaving money on the table as it ranges from 16-18% of the bill.

When we asked about it our server responded that they automatically add in 20% tip for parties of 6 or more OR when the bill is over $100. Personally that makes no sense to me and actually really didn't like it all. What are other people's thoughts?
