Do Americans leave money on the restaurant table or bar and leave?

In the movies Americans often just leave money on the bar, or on the table at a cafe or a restaurant, and walk out. Does this happen in real life?

They rarely wait for a bill or ask how much they owe, they'll just put a few notes down and leave. Is this something that really happens or is it just in the movies? (Kind of like how in the movies Americans never say goodbye on the phone, they just hang up - I assume that's not how it is in real life.)
