Great fresh warm donuts

A little place you might drive by if you weren't paying attention. My daughter brought me there after she had been there meeting her friends after school. Very good.

Therefore, we must return. Very friendly atmosphere and exceptional hospitality. Looking forward to our next trip through Memphis. Hopefully we can plan on an earlier arrival and catch the maple bacons. Note: Gus' World Famous Fried Chicken is right across the street.

Their variety is like no other and the price can't be beat! You must try their jelly filled donuts! They have seasonal varieties and maple bacon donuts! This place fills up fast on weekend mornings!

I've had cravings for apple fritters since I was pregnant with my son- this was the best apple fritter I've ever had! But bring a friend- it's huge!

Dropped by in the middle of the day for a tasty treat. Love those old fashioned cake donuts and glazed donuts. Made my day!

Need I say more? Got a dozen and all were delicious but the maple bacon are a must try. They also had delicious red velvet donuts when I went in. Only $8 for a dozen. Worth a stop!

The positive reviews are spot on! The donuts are terrific and we had the benefit of meeting the owner who sat down with us- he advised us on places to eat in Memphis and gave each of us a free donut, hot out of his kitchen (much appreciated although we had each already eaten 2 donuts already)! Great local place... More

Whenever friends from out of town come to visit, we make a trip to Gibsons. The donuts are really very good. Reminds me of going to donut shops when I was a kid. The inside is basic and old fashioned but clean. Just be aware that the workers really don't seem to want to be there.

The smell alone is worth the trip. I love doughnuts and these are some of the best I've ever had. Coffee was kind of terrible, my only complaint.

Don't go anywhere else, seriously. Gibson's has your classic donuts and the crazy flavors, too. The flavors change with the seasons and the sprinkle colors reflect holidays or how the Grizz & Tigers are doing in their seasons. You can go early in the morning or late at night, either way, just go and don't eat donuts from anywhere else.
