More than 40% of diners want to get rid of tipping, says new survey


Would you be willing to pay more for a meal if it meant you didn't have to leave a tip?

The highlights of the survey were published this week by Zagat.

It also found that, on average, Americans tip about 18% at restaurants. The best tippers are in Philadelphia, who tip about 20%.
