Cave Man Kitchen

Founded in 1971 by Dick Donley... Cave Man Kitchen, today, still specializes in the same, flavorful smokehouse technique using local woods stoked over an open flame which gives our meats a uniquely Northwest flavor.

We are a smokehouse not a BBQ joint...


Our Guarantee to you...

Cave Man Kitchen's menu is whole foods. 

There is little to no processing, our foods are cooked fresh daily.  No additives, preservatives, glutamates, nitrates, sulfates and primates (that we know of) and absolutely no liquid smoke in our meats. 

Most of our items are gluten-free diet friendly.

Smoking is an art that relies on the senses.  Through our many years of experience, we have perfected the craft hailing our unique smoke roasting techniques with much acclaim.


As in days of old our wood smoking signature of authenticity is the smoke ring and reddish color within the pork, beef, chicken, ribs, turkey etc.


Allowing the flavor of the sweet hardwoods to permeate the meat a low constant blaze is maintained.  A tender crust seals the meat allowing it to smoke roast within its own succulent juices.  The aroma this process exudes is heaven to the senses!


From the Kent Valley in Washington State, Presidents to paupers have tasted our unique Native Northwest flavor.  Stop in and "read our wall" we have posted letters from customers, friends, bands, presidents, celebrities, corporations.. all fans of the Cave. 


Being family owned and operated since 1971, it has been our intent to offer the public the convenience of delicious “Comfort Food” for more than an affordable price!


Our seasoned staff (that’s family and extended family) has catered events from five to five thousand and custom smoked everything imaginable. (You Choke ‘Em—We’ll Smoke ‘Em!)


We’d be delighted to help you with your special occasion or have you drop in and let us prepare you a meal for dining in or taking out.
