Gibson's Donuts

760 Mt. Moriah Rd.
Memphis, TN 38117

There are donuts and then there's Gibson's Donuts. These light and fluffy pillows of fried dough goodness are exceptionally tasty. They have cake and yeast donuts a plenty plus fritters, donut holes, cinnamon rolls, and éclairs. Among the local's favorites are red velvet cake, blueberry, New Orleans buttermilk donut and, of course, glazed donuts.

The old-school neon sign never shuts down as Gibson's is open 24 hours a day. So, if you need a late-night sugar fix or want to grab your laptop and get some work done, you know where to go. This is a very popular place, so if the line (sometimes out the door) makes you want to keep driving – don't. The lines move quickly and the slight wait is definitely worth it.
