U2 frontman Bono left a waitress speechless when he generously tipped her $150 on a $20 bill.

After U2's performance in Los Angeles on Saturday night, the rockstars stopped into West Hollywood diner Canter's Deli.

The dad-of-four was reportedly served by a waitress in her 50s who recommended the best of what the popular eatery had to offer.

According to Billboard, the Dubliner opted for a corned beef reuben sandwich, french fries and onion rings.

The waitress then sent over a traditional Jewish dessert - chocolate rugelach - which she gave him free of charge.

In return, the 55-year-old dug deep into his pockets and left a $150 tip - which equates to a staggering 750%.

Not bad for a night's work!

Canters Deli later got the nod on the band's official website:

"Before' Iris (Hold Me Close)', there was talk of L.A. resident The Edge leaving 'blood on the dance floor' after the band’s club gig the night before at the Roxy, as well as Bono’s recent trip to the famed Canter’s deli. U2’s love for L.A. was proclaimed - all of L.A. - downtown, the valleys, the canyons, and its feeling of 'what might be'. "
