This is optional...a lot of chain restaurants in the US make the take-out responsibility part of a server's sidework. If it's a bartender or a server, they have to take your phone call, enter the order, check the order and handle the payment. It gets entered on their sales tranactions and they are required to pay a minimum of 10% towards their declared earnings. Remember that when deciding to compenate them for their effort. You don't have to tip as heavily as you would table service but you should give them something if it's all done correctly and quickly.
