Cranking out donuts since 1967, Gibson’s Donuts is a true Memphis staple and might just be the home of the best donuts around! Open 24 hours a day, Gibson’s is a late night hangout spot for college students – partially because of their cheap late night treats. 

At 10 pm every night, they start preparing donuts for the next day.  So at 11 pm, the current day’s donuts go on sale…CHEAP! 6 donuts are only $1.40!  A dozen donuts are less than $3!  Now that’s some good cheap eats!

Gibson’s Donuts are known for their red velvet cake donut with cream cheese frosting.  However, the employee favorite is the New Orleans buttermilk drop, which tastes like southern white cake that’s been fried and then dipped in frosting.  I’m hungry just thinking about it!

The secret to Gibson’s Donuts is that they let their dough rise 3 times.  The extra attention to detail definitely shows in the final product.  If you’ve never tried Gibson’s Donuts before, what are you waiting for? Stop by 760 Mt Moriah Road and try them today!
