So good!

Everything was good. I missed the maple bacon, but i can only imagine how good it would have been. The New Orleans was the best!!! All were really good & they have good coffee, too.

The donuts are good but not particularly unique or special. Good variety and a favorite of the locals. Not very clean inside. Service was good. Quality will be better at Krispy Kreme.

Had to try the lemon drop donut holes, apple fritter and of course the maple bacon donut and they were all divine. We normally don't eat donuts but due to the reviews we had to stop in. It did not disappoint!! The prices are good and the shop is nice. Loved it!!!

Picked Gibson's because of all of the great ratings; even though it was not downtown where we were staying. Gibson's did not disappoint! We tried the famous bacon donut which was a sweet but savory treat. We also got a variety of cake and glazed donuts. Our favorite was the apple fritter - the best we've ever had! The owners... More

A group of us HAD to have some of the legendary Gibson's donuts and we decided that March 7, 2015 was the day. We had a nice variety, but I have to single out the Maple/bacon donuts as some of the finest morsels I have ever had the pleasure of consuming. I made the mistake of only getting a half... More

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.

Friendly service, quick service. Great doughnuts and best filled doughnuts in memphis. Cooked early and if you can get them straight from back its a bit of heaven.

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.
