How do you tip at a buffet?

A friend of mine was commenting on my post To tip or not to tip and the conversation turned to tipping at buffets. This has always been something I have been curious about. We have several all you can eat buffets in my area. The ones that stand out are Ryan’s Steakhouse and The Golden Corral. You get your own food, and the waiter brings you refills on your drink and might even carry away some dirty dishes. How much should you leave for a tip? Certainly not the standard 15%. After all, you have to get you own food!
I normally leave a few bucks, but I’m really not sure of the right way!
