KANSAS CITY, Mon.-Q39, the famous grill restaurant here, has always been a popular spot for NFL offensive linemen. Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher, the former starters of the Chiefs, spent long hours in the Q39 enjoying the smoked brisket, seared ends, and pulled pork. In recent years, the offensive line for visiting teams like the Denver Broncos had their dinner at Q39 the night before the game against the Chiefs. And yes, Coach Andy Reid’s first dinner in Kansas City after the Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV was a takeaway order that included burnt ends, onion straws, mac and cheese, and a 39th quarter diet Coke .
On Wednesday night, the restaurant hosted the Chiefs’ newest players: guards Joe Thuney and Kyle Long.
“Just unbelievable,” said Thuney. “Every bite was better than the last.”
Long agreed and suggested that Q39 was the perfect place for the two linemen to meet for the first time.
