Waiter's $5,000 Tip For $27 Meal: 'Buy A Nice Car'

MSNBC.COM - A couple left a waiter who recently lost his car a $5,000 tip for their $27 lunch.

Greg Rubar has worked as a waiter at D'Amico's in Rice Village for 16 years.

In that time, Rubar has received plenty of large tips, but on Saturday, he said a pair of regulars gave him an envelope with $5,000 cash.

"He said, 'We're still going to come in, but we're not going to tip you for a while.' He said this is for you to go and buy a nice car," said Rubar.

Rubar lost his car in a severe storm several weeks ago. He had been taking cabs and buses to get to work.

Brina D'Amico Donaldson, a co-owner of the restaurant, said she was surprised by the amount of money he was given. click here to read more
