A restaurant server at an IHOP in Illinois hit the jackpot when actor Donnie Wahlberg dined at the restaurant.

His bill was just $78, but he left a tip of $2,020, WLS reports.

Wahlberg's wife, Jenny McCarthy, tweeted a picture of their tab Wednesday. It had "Happy New Year" and "2020 Tip Challenge" written on it with a smiley face.

McCarthy is a native of the Chicago area and the couple lives in St. Charles, the ABC affiliate in Chicago reports.
