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.

I really liked their donuts. I had a plain glazed donut, two chocolate donuts, and one with chocolate and sprinkles. They were very good and very cheap as well.

I tried this place about 2 years ago during a routine business trip to Memphis. The first time I sank my teeth into the Bacon Maple donut, I was instantly in love.

Two words-APPLE FRITTERS. And if you buy a dozen (great bargain), they count as 2 donuts, which was perfect for us. All the flavors were great so you can't go wrong. They were soft and not dry-although we went in the morning when they were fresh.

I have now eaten the best donuts in the world. I had to go back twice during my business trip in Memphis to experience the great flavors. My favorite was the caramel, maple, and new orleans. My wife also loved the red velvet (she removed the icing). These donuts will melt in your mouth and not make you feel guilty... More
