we're talking abotu friends right, not just some people they sat at your table because restaurant was full? lol

I mean, if it's co workers or some  associates, it might be different. But with friends, we can't keep track of who paid last or who owes who a few bucks on the tab. We used to share our monthly college allowance checks til someone else's check came in. lol So by now we are too deep in debt to keep up. Sometime we jokingly say, "I owe you, you owe me" while one of us takes the chk.

If I go out with Family sometimes everyone just contribute whatever, and it usually exceeds the bill plus tip, or one of my brothers will pick up the tab.
With friends I will estimate the cost of my meal plus something for the tip.

I don't go out in big groups.
When we do we pay for our own sh*t.

It depends on who I am with and the circumstances.  If it's a big group or if it's not possible to get a separate check, I will always keep track of what I ordered and round up for either the tip or service charge (depends on which country I'm in).  Sometimes I will split the tab evenly. 

I remember this one time I went to a restaurant party.  I came super late and only had one drink.  This fool told me I owed 3500yen (USD $35)!  I was young and pretty much just out of college so I didn't really know how that worked in Japan.  Then I realized he was a sleazy-ass foreigner taking advantage of the Japanese custom to split the bill.  Never again, said I, after that.

Separate check please

I hate going out with my one friend. She doesn't have a job but expects me to pay for her drinks/food. I don't mind paying sometimes but not all the damn time! You aint my girl! You aint licking the kitty! Why the hell should you get a free meal and drinks all the time?

That's why I only take $30 with me now when I go out with her and I tell her I'm broke and I only got money for me LOL

Separate checks. Best friend or not, I am not paying for your steak dinner when I searched all over this menu for the 6.99 lunch special. Bye, friend.
