The check was only $82 dollars, but that didn’t stop Donnie Wahlberg from leaving a $2,000 tip on a check at a Waffle House in North Carolina.

“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!” Wahlberg wrote in a Facebook post.

Wahlberg also recorded a Facebook live video in the restaurant during which he spent time with the staff and offered them tickets and backstage passes to his concert Thursday night in Charlotte.

His reality show may be called “Donnie Loves Jenny” but, clearly, he also loves Waffle House and giving back. Just last month he left a $500 tip at a location in Maryland.

“Great crew at @WaffleHouse in Edgewater, MD! Thanks for the awesome service! Night made!,” Wahberg tweeted at the time.
