After 40 years of serving hungry East Tennesseans, Ali Baba's Time Out Deli in West Knoxville is closing its doors for the final time Tuesday night.
The West Knoxville staple has been serving an eclectic middle eastern menu, from falafel and hummus, and gyros to schuerma for the past 14,600 days.
On the last day of business, loyal customers from far and wide came to the restaurant for one last meal.
Ali Baba says it's not about the business, he says it's just time to retire.
He thanked customers for their loyalty and says he looks forward to spending more time with his grandchildren.
