U2's Bono performs at the Forum on May 27.

What's for dinner? Corned beef reuben, fries and rugelach on the house.

Leave it to Bono to make a Los Angeles waitress' night. 

The U2 frontman went for a late-night meal at L.A. landmark Canters Deli on Saturday night where he was waited on by a 50-year veteran of the restaurant.

Unexpected Death

According to a source, the rocker asked his server to pick out his meal, which she did, bringing out a veritable mish-mash of classic Jewish deli fare including a corned beef reuben, french fries and onion rings. For dessert: chocolate chip rugelach on the house.

Bono left a $150 tip for the waitress, on a bill that totaled less that $20.

Canters later got a shout-out on the U2 website, which noted, "U2’s love for L.A. was proclaimed - all of L.A. - downtown, the valleys, the canyons, and its feeling of 'what might be.'"

U2 wraps a five-night, standing-room-only run at The Forum on Wednesday, June 3.
