CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The employees at a Waffle House in Charlotte got a big surprise late Wednesday night.

Actor and New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg posted a photo on his Facebook page of his check at Waffle House for $82.60 -- with a $2,000 tip, WSOC reported.

“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!” Walhberg wrote in his Facebook post.
