childhood memories of Cuban sandwiches and empanadas in Miami...

Its been probably 10+ years since I've been to this little cafeteria and its probably not the best but I have fond memories of it from childhood. I was wondering if anyone knew if it was still there and still serving cuban sandwiches and empanadas (and is it any good these days?). It was in a little row of stores on 441 (I think the closest major intersection might have been Miami Gardens Drive just north of North Miami Beach?) - it was just a countertop and a few stools. I remember their Cuban sandwiches were fresh pressed and toasty and their empanadas were flaky and crisp (probably fried in lard) and filled with ground beef, chopped green olives, and raisins. If no one knows, I'll drop by when I'm in FL for the holidays and report back if anyone is interested but would love to know if they're still there before I get my hopes up.
