The Kansas City Chiefs are winning big on and off the field.
According to KCTV5, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali left a thousand dollar tip at a local restaurant recently.
Hali and up to 15 friends and family went to Fogo de Chao about 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The restaurant was pretty empty because most fans had stayed home to watch the game or traveled to Arrowhead.
Hali and his group enjoyed the all-you-can-eat-pig-out-fest of meat and racked up a bill of more than $1,800. The restaurant automatically added a tip of almost $300.
Restaurant employees say Hali is a regular customer who is a generous tipper. Still they were stunned when he added an additional $1,000 gratuity onto the bill.
“It made our day. Hands down, it made our day,” server Joshua Roan said. “The staff was over the top. He was the last guest in the building. There was a lot of shouting and hollering after he left. We had to wait until he left. We had to keep it professional.”
This is just an awesome story. Anyone that has worked in the service industry knows how difficult of a job it can be and it is always nice to see those blessed with greater means do something generous.
The Chiefs and Hali are having a terrific season. KC’s defense leads the NFL in sacks, thanks in large part to Hali, who has racked up nine so far in 2013, matching his 2012 total. Hali also has four forced fumbles and an interception return for a TD.
