Donnie Wahlberg leaves $2,000 tip at Waffle House

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WHDH) — Actor and singer Donnie Wahlberg has made employees at a Waffle House in North Carolina a little richer this morning.

In a post on his Facebook page, the former New Kids on the Block member and Dorchester native showed a receipt from a Waffle House in Charlotte, North Carolina from Wednesday night as well as a photo with the staff at the restaurant.

The bill came to $82.60, but Wahlberg left a $2,000 tip.

“My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars,” Wahlberg said in the post. “So when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens!”

The post has been shared more than 4,000 times on Facebook and has earned more than 64,000 reactions as of Thursday morning.
