Steakadelphia

5835 SE Powell Blvd., 788-7141, steakadelphia.com. Lunch and dinner Monday-Saturday.

Wit' cheesesteaks, everyone's an expert. There are definitely people who'll tell you any shop that has iceberg lettuce or A-1 sauce on hand is doing it wrong, and others who'll say they should stick wit' whiz, and leave it at that. But Steakadelphia does a good job of griddle-frying up thin, fatty shreds of beef and onions, and slapping them on buns that soak up the ambient oil to become almost like meaty doughnuts. If you come, get some flavor of steakwich—the burger was a bit of a disappointment.
