We were told this was a great place for donuts. There are no signs identifying the type so you had to ask. Got an orange koolaid one and a maple with bacon. Was not impressed with either.

We were passing through Memphis and discovered this place through Trip Advisor. While all the donuts we bought were excellent the red velvet ones are to die for.

I was looking for a quick sweet bite after some fabulous, late Saturday night 'Vous "Q" downtown. Since Gibson's is open 24 hours, I thought it would work out just fine. Got to Gibson's and could not have been more dissapointed, very, very few donuts. Not to mention, donuts, especially raised (the owner Don's favorite) have a half-life. You donut-people... More

The shop is small with limited seating and can get crowded, but the line moves quickly. There is no signage identifying the donuts, so you're just pointing and hoping you're picking what you like. When I asked questions about what was what, the staff answered, but didn't offer up anything more. Top secret info I guess. The donuts were tasty... More

This is the third time we've grabbed Gibson's on our way out of Memphis and we always enjoy it! They have the prices of a small town bakery or even some grocery stores, but their donuts are very high quality. I always enjoy their blueberry donut and this time I tried their mini cinnamon role and it was really great!... More

We loved these donuts! The best donuts I have has in years! I loved the red velvet and buttermilk drop. My husband really liked the maple bacon. The gentleman who helped us (I think the owner) was very nice, helpful and patient. We will be back!

I saw Gibson's Donuts on Man vs Food and they had a maple bacon donut and it was amazing. Also the caramel, glaze, fruit filled and apple fritter was amazing too.

I like donuts. I like apple fritters more. This place is definitely the best place to get an apple fritter. There are other unique flavors. Bacon and maple donut, green apple donut, caramel, and my wifes favorite, the red velvet donut. The sweetest donuts I have ever eaten. So sweet I ate only half of the apple fritter. More than...

All the donuts at Gibson's are good, even the jelly filled and I. Hate. Jelly filled. The bacon maple are sinful slap your mama good, as are the New Orleans, and a basic glazed, hot from the fryer, is a Memphis communion wafer.
