I've got to admit, the gyros are pretty tempting at the Steak Shop & Deli (1801 E. Sample Rd., Pompano Beach, 954-941-5790). But I just can't get past the Philly cheesesteak, a signature item at this pleasant, Miami Dolphins-color sandwich shop. You can get it prepared traditionally: some sautéed onions, mushrooms, and peppers, plus lots of melted cheese. You can have it doused with marinara as a pizza steak. Or you can go upscale and have your steak sautéed and topped with mushroom wine sauce. But any way you slice it... well, you're not gonna want to slice it -- because then you just might have to share.
