Another tipping question... buffet/brazilian steakhouse

AmblerGirl | May 11, 200801:07 PM     15

What is the appropriate tip % at a brazilian steakhouse? We recently went to a loca brazilian steakhouse, similar to a Fogo de Chao but much more casual. I tipped aropund 10% which is what I usually tip at a buffet. My logic is that all of the food (except the meat) is served buffet style and the meat is served by men walking around with giant skewers. So, our waitress did not really do anything except get our drinks. When my husband found out what I tipped he called me cheap and said we should have left a full tip (we typically tip 20%). So, was my husband right and was I completely cheap (and sould I be emarassed to go back)?
