ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Ja’Marr Chase served up many thrills during his rookie season with the Cincinnati Bengals. A few days after his team lost in the Super Bowl, the rookie wide receiver was serving customers in the drive-thru of a suburban Cincinnati restaurant.

The NFL’s rookie of the year was working a shift at Raising Cane’s in Anderson Township on Wednesday, passing out meals to surprised customers at the drive-thru lane and at the cash register of the chicken chain restaurant, Sports Illustrated reported.

Chase leaned out of the drive-thru window to deliver food and took orders from customers, WCPO-TV reported. Some of the customers recognized Chase immediately and congratulated him on his season, the television station reported. Chase caught 81 passes during the regular season for 1,455 yards and 13 touchdowns and added five catches for 89 yards during the Bengals’ 23-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI. One of those catches was a spectacular 46-yard reception from Joe Burrow that set up the Bengals’ first score.

“I’ve been a Chase fan ever since his record-breaking days at LSU,” Todd Graves, founder of Raising Cane’s, said in a statement. “He’s one of the best receivers on the planet, and we’re proud to call him a Caniac. College All-American to professional All-Pro; it doesn’t get much better than that. We love surprising our customers — and our amazing crewmembers, too — with unexpected visitors, and we’re grateful Chase dropped by to thank his fans for their support throughout the season.”

Chase was not the only player working at a Raising Cane’s. On Tuesday, Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, still savoring a Super Bowl victory, also worked at one of the chain’s restaurants, Sports Illustrated reported.
