Ali Baba’s Time Out Deli

I have lived in Tennessee most of my life and saw this small little deli on several different occasions but chose to never stop. Just yesterday my family and I grabbed some lunch from Ali Baba’s and I was immediately mad at myself for never stopping before. I ordered the falafel pita with spicy fries and a coke. It was so good that I can not wait to go back and grab some more.

The owner is an older man from Palastine. The deli has a large variety of food and even a halal meat selection and ethnic grocery store. I would have gave Ali baba’s an A while grading but one thing always gets to me when Muslims own business’s or sell what they say is halal meat. What is that you ask? SELLING PORK! This is a Muslim owned business. Even on the menu it says “some meat is halal” and that they sell halal meat. How can you sell and serve halal meat if you sell pork? That just does not add up right to me.

Grade: C
