First time having Gibson's Donuts & they were YUMMY! We had caramel & glazed! Just like eating Lays potato chips, you just can't eat one! You must try these donuts!! They have several flavors.

NOTE: This review covers donut purchases for 4 days in a row! Yes....we went back every single day of our trip! We initially stopped by here after the flashing DONUTS lights caught our attention when leaving Gus's Fried chicken. At the time we arrived (maybe 8pm), there were not many donuts left to choose from. I asked if they had... More

Gibson's is a Memphis Institution, a well earned reputation as some of the most delicious donuts on the planet. Great choices and all are delicious having had most of them! My favorite is the simple glazed donuts, soft, melt in your mouth. Two of these and a cup of coffee can't be beat.

Gibson's is always serving up the best donuts in town... the bacon donuts are the bomb, love the red velvet and the apple fritters are always a sugar overload...

I've been eating at Gibson's for so many years I can't remember my first time. They are really the best doughnuts I've ever eaten. I am chocoholic so chocolate doughnuts and éclairs are my favorite. The apple fritters are excellent too and so large you can't eat the whole thing at once.

Gibson's Donuts is always a treat, but go out of your way to visit in October. Their Pumpkin Donuts are unique and yummy. Both glazed and unglazed pumpkin are delicious. I have not encountered these delicacies anywhere else. You do NOT want to miss them (or the many other assorted donuts)!

Delicious! Great customer service! Good variety. Worth the cheat on my diet. Worth the drive from my hotel.
