NKOTB singer Donnie Walhberg leaves surprise for Charlotte Waffle House employees


In the post he wrote, "My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars- for years!" For starters, he left a $2,000 tip on a $82.60 bill.

When the New Kids On The Block singer got settled into his Waffle House booth, he quickly learned that the staff at this particular location was something to be treasured. "Thanks to the team at @wafflehouseofficial Charlotte, NC!"

This isn't the first time Donnie - who is married to Jenny McCarthy - has left a generous tip after visiting Waffle House.

The Facebook post has since received nearly 2,000 shares and 28,000 reactions. He's been hitting up a Waffle House in nearly every city, as he's documented on his social profiles.

New Kids On The Block is scheduled to play a show at the Spectrum Center later on Thursday. According to a Facebook post by Wahlberg, the waitstaff treated him "like a king", so he chose to say thanks by dropping a pretty hefty tip on his relatively small bill.

Wahlberg adds later in the live stream, "We're just gonna have to invite this whole Waffle House to the concert". The video has over 200,000 views.
