Yes it does make sense! It's a standing rule for me to add 10% on to what my initial estimate is... I would rather leave extra than get a bad rap of being cheap and having people walk away hungry.

BBS did well... I often run my prices by my GF... Her first statment normally is "You're almost giving it away" followed by the question of "what would that cost in a restaurant?"

Please don't tell her but, she is more often right than I am....
