If this happens often...your portion sizes are large.
I'm not about charging phantom charges for loyal customers just trying navigate portion sizes. Many people have zero desire to take away leftovers...and some people struggle to open a wallet...over anything.
If you have no additional charges for accommodating to-go orders...a split charge or share charge is going to be met with a fight.
You can have a policy that if an entree is split...it comes with one salad or side (however you do it). Additional salad/sides will not be split by the restaurant. Additional sides or salads are offered...at additional charges. Or...here's the entree...here's a plate. Here's a salad...and an extra plate. Especially for salads. Requests for splitting a salad. Jesus.
