Generational Divide: Young vs. Old

Interestingly, not everyone feels the same way. Only 45% of Gen Zers share the negative sentiment towards tipping, while 72% of Boomers are fed up. Millennials and Gen Xers fall somewhere in between, with 51% and 62% respectively expressing dissatisfaction. It seems the younger you are, the less you mind tipping, or maybe you're just used to it?

Service Matters: Quality Over Everything

Despite the gripes, Texans still value good service. A solid 67% base their tips on the quality of service received. Whether you're enjoying a meal at a sit-down restaurant or grabbing a quick coffee, excellent service can still earn a generous tip. However, the overall trend shows tipping percentages have flattened out. For example, restaurant tips have remained around 18.9% since last year.
