PLANT CITY, FL (WFLA) -

A mystery woman who many say looked like the Florida woman who recently won the Powerball jackpot picked up the tab for 180 diners at a Plant City restaurant.   

It happened around 4 p.m. Sunday at BuddyFreddy's.      

Restaurant manager Stephanie Reaves told the Tampa Bay Times the woman looked like Gloria C. MacKenzie. She was with another woman and a younger man. They ate, then left. She returned and paid $2,600 to cover the meals for the rest of the diners. She even left $50 each for each of the five servers.      

Reaves says everyone got up and applauded.      

The donor denied she was the lottery winner but Reaves says she "fit the description."     

MacKenzie stepped forward last week to claim the largest single jackpot in American lottery history.
