Cincinnati's Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse is offering a special dish to honor Joe Burrows, who the Bengals will likely select with the top pick in April's NFL Draft.

The dish is inspired by Burrow's recent Heisman Trophy acceptance speech "where he recognized his (Athens, Ohio) hometown and brought awareness to the issue of food insecurity in that area," a Facebook post announcing the new dish read.

With respect to his speech, the restaurant is donating $9 (Burrow's number at LSU) from each order to the Athens County Food Pantry.

"The Steak Burrow" is a 16 oz. blackened prime ribeye with Creole crawfish sauce, a nod to his star-making two years playing college football in Louisiana.
