"My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars-- for years!" the 47-year-old artist wrote on Instagram on Thursday. "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!"
And this isn't a one-off occurrence for Wahlberg, who seems to have a soft spot for the Waffle House specifically. In June, Wahlberg left the Edgewater, Maryland, location's night crew a $500 gratuity for their service, also taking to social media to rave about his experience.
