Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes orders Postmates just like the rest of us. However, his menu is a little bit more established than the average 25-year-old. The 2020 Super Bowl MVP signed a $503 million dollar contract in July and has a little bit more jangle in his pocket these days.
Since joining Postmates in 2018, Mahomes, his fiancé and soon-to-be baby momma Brittany Matthews, and his little brother Jackson have ordered more than 170 different meals, items and snacks from Patrick’s account.
His top-five most-ordered items are:
- Prime rib and mashed potatoes
- Grilled chicken with cheddar sandwiches from Potbelly
- Burrito bowls from Chipotle
- Chicken biscuits from Chick-fil-A
- Barbecue sandwich and fries
It is well-established by now that Mahomes puts ketchup on his steak. So not only is he ordering a delicious cut of meat while the rest of us are getting Wendy’s or Taco Bell, he’s dousing it in the tomato-based spread. How nice it must be to have “get this incredibly expensive steak delivered only to ruin it with an unnecessary condiment” kind of money.
The rest of his orders are just like ours and that’s somewhat comforting, I guess. Potbelly is Mahomes’ go-to pregame meal, which is is fire, burrito bowls are a staple in any good diet and I like to imagine that the chicken biscuits are part of the Monday-morning post-win hangover recovery process.
His biggest order to date came right in the heart of quarantine. On May 28, 2020, got french fries, BBQ beans, smoked turkey, a full slab dinner (with an extra full slab of ribs), pulled pork, potato salad, one pound of turkey, two Z-Man sandwiches (sliced smoked brisket, smoked provolone cheese, a couple of onion rings, a bit of barbecue sauce, all on top of a Kaiser roll), beef brisket and Texas toast.
While the meal sounds delicious, it makes me wonder who all went over to Mahomes’ place to eat. This was in May, not three months after the world shutdown due to COVID-19. Gatherings more than 10 people were not allowed, but if he invited over his offensive line, I guess it’s plausible that a smaller gathering could put down all of that food. I digress.
It also begs the question where the vegetables factor into his diet.
“Greens are not my favorite but I have to eat them so I make it work,” Mahomes said.
Another interesting note comes from July 20, 2020. Before I dive in, mind you, if I had a bankroll like Pat’s, all of the homies are going to eat, especially my fiancé. However, on that particular Monday, she had herself a day on her future husband’s dime at odd hours.
At 3:49 p.m. Brittany ordered a dragon fruit bowl and a juice. Three minutes later, she ordered shatto milk, donut holes and a donut. When dinner time rolled around, at 7:07 p.m., she had hash browns, milk, chocolate milk and a short stack of buttermilk pancakes delivered from IHOP. All of her orders were breakfast food in the afternoon. Does she just roll out of bed at three o’clock in the afternoon and decide to get her day started? And who drinks that much milk? Strange.
Most recently, Mahomes, his brother and his fiancé Postmated Jolly Ranchers four times.
“We kind of got hooked on them recently,” he said. “We can’t keep them stocked at our house. We all love them, Brittany, Jackson, and I.”
I once drove for a delivery service similar to Postmates. Delivering Jolly Ranchers and only Jolly Ranchers would have cost me significantly more than I would have made in the amount of gas I used to get there and the time I spent making the trip. I assume he tips well, because he can, but there’s not a hefty tip on top of what (very little) the company pays the driver, it’s a real jerk move.
Mahomes’ Postmates record isn’t all bad, however. In fact, it solidifies that he’s a really great guy. On September 10, 2020, prior to Kansas City’s season-opener against Houston, he placed a massive order of Jamaican food to be delivered to doctors and nurses in Houston. And to repay the favor, DeShaun Watson returned the favor for medical professionals in Kansas City.
In addition, on ‘Giving Tuesday’ earlier this week, his foundation teamed up with Postmates. For every order placed from a local restaurant, Postmates donated $1 (up to $50,000) to Patrick Mahomes’ foundation, 15 and The Mahomies, a Kansas City-based foundation that supports initiatives focused on improving education, health and wellness.
Good on you Postmates, good on you Mahomes. Just remember to tip fat on your Jolly Rancher deliveries.
