Not only does Gibsons have the very best doughnuts around, but they also have the friendliest staff!! Each month they have a special doughnut of the month. Some of them end up staying around for a while because the customers demand like the maple/bacon. But I'll have to wait for my favorite the somore to return. Come in the mornings... More

Crazy good donuts!!! Well worth the drive to the opposite side of town for breakfast before we left Memphis. Loved the lemon drops and buttermilk. Yum!!!

We made a stop to Gibson Donuts during our recent visit to Memphis. We tried several different kinds, but our favorite was the bacon topped donut! There were so many different unique options for donuts. Definitely worth a stop!!

These donuts here are amazing and the team is always introducing new flavors. Many people love the red velvet donut, which is delicious, but my favorite is the plain chocolate iced. The staff here are incredible and always cheery. They will take orders over the phone so you can just swing by and pick up your dozen or 2 on... More

These are certainly decent Donuts. Like them better than Krispy Kreme. Good variety, I can see why the locals like it. But, I've had better and not sure I'd go that much out of my way to get them. If you are ever close by, try Britt's Donuts at Carolina Beach, NC. Now, those are worth raving about and making... More

The red velvet donuts are phenomenal. They do run out do get there early in the day. Anytime I travel I stop and get them to bring home. The buttermilk drops are also fantastic.

All of the donuts were good but my husband's favorite was the apple pie filled and I loved the cream filled. Great blueberry cake donut and... More

Our family makes this stop a priority when we drive through Memphis from East TN going to Tx! Discovered it a couple years back when we stopped in to eat at Gus' Fried Chicken across the street. (Also YUM!) After fried chicken was devoured My hubs has radar for donuts and spotted Gibson's sign! Donuts were yeasty and tender and... More
