As seen on Instagram, the Blue Bloods actor gave the crew a whopping $2000 tip (on a $82.60 check)! WOWZA! He posted:

My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars– for years! So, when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens! Thanks to the team at @wafflehouseofficial Charlotte, NC! ❤️A post shared by DONNIE WAHLBERG (@donniewahlberg) on Jul 12, 2017 at 10:07pm PDT

In June, Jenny McCarthy‘s husband gave the Waffle House in Edgewood, Maryland a $500 tip (on a $62.75 bill), cementing him as the chain’s number one customer!

According to a Facebook Live video posted that night, Mark Wahlberg‘s brother gave the waitstaff (and some fans) “front row” tickets to his concert on Thursday!
