Joe Burrow is a real mensch.
Despite being only 26 years old, Joe Burrow has quickly become a master at winning and maintaining fans.
With numerous nicknames such as Joe Cool, Joe Brrr, Joe Sheisty, and his latest self-proclaimed alias Joey De La Cruz, Burrow consistently demonstrates his appreciation for the opportunities he has been given.
Even Joey Votto jokingly commented on Burrow’s photo, expressing relief that his last name wasn’t used.
Recently, Burrow displayed his generosity during a visit to Columbus, Ohio, where he attended Ohio State University before achieving great success at LSU as a graduate transfer.
Surprisingly, he made an impromptu visit to a local restaurant called the Brown Bag Deli in German Village.
Ethan Benton, an employee at the deli, was working the grill when Burrow ordered four Classic Clubs, which consisted of smoked turkey, crispy bacon, and a special garlic-herb mayo sauce on locally baked sourdough bread.
Benton initially didn’t recognize Burrow but quickly learned that the customer was none other than the famous football player.
The deli suddenly became busy with people, and Benton hurried to prepare Burrow’s sandwiches.
Burrow’s order also included a delightful local treat, baklava.
Benton shared that it was an exciting experience and expressed admiration for Burrow, describing him as a genuinely nice person.
“He’s just a heck of a guy,” she said to the Columbus Dispatch. “He is who we all think he is.”
Another customer, Kate Haugh, was also present at the deli and managed to take a selfie with the Cincinnati Bengals star. The deli shared the exciting encounter on Instagram and asked their followers if they recognized the famous guest.
To show his appreciation, Burrow left a generous $50 tip on top of the $57 bill for his order.

Molly Merkle, the owner of Brown Bag Deli, praised Burrow’s character and described him as a fantastic person.
It’s no wonder why many people worry about him potentially stealing their significant others, given his admirable qualities.
