Best doughnuts EVER!!!!!!!!!!

I can't eat anyone else's doughnuts now, all of the other ones out there don't even come close to the quality of Gibson's and all the love that is put into them. Believe me this is a great thing and my boyfriend and I just keep coming back and always will!!! Once you have had the taste of Gibson's... read more

Great donuts. Inexpensive treat and not a bad choice in the place. My kids will pick coming here over ice cream (and that is saying a lot). Try the apple fritter.... Yum

Being a donut eater from way back, I rate gibson's as the best in memphis. All of their selections are equally as good but prefer the regular glazed and the blueberry cake. Well worth the trip from anywhere in town.

An institution in East Memphis, Gibson's provides a lot of joy to a lot of people. We live within walking distance which is good because it gives us a chance to walk off some of the calories. I have enjoyed a lot of different goods from here, but you can't go wrong with a chocolate iced donut.

Made fresh by the minute and sold as fast as they are put on the shelves. Deadly good and a real sugar fix. Not recommended for diabetics though!

We went on National Donut Day, and the place was packed. I purchased a dozen donuts an my son purchased a dozen. The donuts are decent enough. The credit card machine was extremely slow, and Apparently it was the owner, was telling people instead of waiting for your card to go through, just to pay next time you came in.... More

After you try Gibson's donuts, turnovers etc. , you will throw rocks at any others. They are the best bar none.

There is no donut to compare to a Gibson's donut. Krispy Kreme is garbage by comparison. The plain, glazed donut is outstanding. The apple fritter and blueberry cake donut are amazing. The raspberry jelly-filled is delectable. But for sheer out-and-out, mind-blowing, awesomeness, the maple-bacon donut is without peer.
