Silvana Salcido Esparza Chef and owner, Barrio Cafe and Barrio Queen
YES: To-go orders have always been a place where I leave $1 to $5 depending on the service. It's still a restaurant, and the pay for them still sucks!
Chef Kevin Binkley Binkley's and Café Bink
NO: There is virtually no service required for a to-go order, therefore not requiring a tip. Although, if you feel that someone has gone the extra mile, or that you received above and beyond service, a tip would be appropriate.
Christopher Gross Chef and owner, Christophers & Crush Lounge
NO: I do most of the time, but I don't think you need to unless you have someone take it to your car or you see them boxing it up and preparing it for you. Most of the time, it's done by the kitchen and then someone just hands it to you.
Eric Flatt Owner, Tonto Bar & Grill/Cartwright's Sonoran Ranch House
YES: A small tip is always nice. To-go orders don't usually involve waitstaff or a tipped employee. Generally, it's the hostess who handles the order. It's a chance for a non-tipped employee to get a little something extra.
