An unidentified woman gave a $2,000 tip to a waitress at Senaida’s Mexican Kitchen in Rowlett, Texas, according to a report from Fox4.
The woman had come in for lunch, ordering queso and nachos with chicken, and left the substantial tip on a bill that amounted to just $21, the report noted.
The waitress was taken aback by the gesture and wanted to express her gratitude, but the kindhearted patron had already left the establishment.
The restaurant took to social media to identify the big tipper and allow the waitress to thank her properly.
“Thank you so much to the amazing young lady that left this during our lunch rush this morning!,” the restaurant posted. “Will you please contact our restaurant? Our server would love to give you a proper thank you!!”
The restaurant’s post garnered a lot of online attention.
“Wow that’s so wonderful!” commented one social media user. “We ate there today too. I bet it was the lady next to us that was alone. So glad there still good kind hearted people in this world! Good job.”
The restaurant clarified in a comment that the entire tip would go to the waitress.
“We don’t share tips at Senaidas. It’s all hers!”
Interestingly, this may not be the first time the mystery woman displayed such generosity, according to the Fox4 report.
Reports suggest she had previously left a substantial tip at another local restaurant, indicating her desire to support and uplift the hard-working individuals in her community.
“Lady, I don’t know who you are but your terrific tips seem to be lifting people’s spirits left and right!” said Fox4 News anchor Lauren Przybyl in a social media post.
