Tipping on Take-Out

Nick Smith | Sep 4, 2001 10:50 PM

What is proper etiquette regarding tipping when you take out food? Say the take-out bill comes to 50$-- what is an appropriate tip (assuming the service is good)?

And same question, but for delivery?

I have been giving about 10 percent in both situations, but I really don't know what is appropriate by NY standards.
