I seem to remember hearing 上手い spoken as じょうずい as a slang,
jocular term (in which case it would have the ``skillful'' meaning).
Also, from my experience, perhaps warped by reading mainly 漫画, the
most common ways to write うまい in the ``tasty'' meaning are 
Stuart Luppescu -=- slu .at.        
University of Chicago -=- CCSR 
才文と智奈美の父 -=-    Kernel 2.6.25-gentoo-r7
