      They're reopened under a new name CK's Smokehouse (family issues taking on the old name) but it's the same family recipes with a 3rd generation grand daughter now running the place. It's just as good if not better!!! Open 7 days a week,

      The Caveman Kitchen used to be very good when the original owner was still alive. They have lost the technique he had for ribs. I bought a pound of ribs today and they were the toughest I have had anywhere. I could not eat them, and threw them away. Awful. This is so sad. The Caveman used to be the best little rib joint in Kent. Those days are over. I have never had such lousy ribs, and the price was not cheap. Fool me once..shame on you. Fool me twice....well...you won't fool me twice.

      This has been around for many year. When the old man owned it, he gave you tastes of everything and you got alot of great food for the money. I would take turkey,salmon or trout there to get it smoked. Then he died and service and food went down hill. I can say more about it but won't cause I figured it was a transition period. Then tried again, not much better. We recently got dinner to bring home. I am small and my husband big (taller than me). It was over $50.00 for the two of us. If we had had a lot of leftovers, I'd be okay with the price. However, it wasn't as good as many years ago and the cost is not for a family living week to week on a pay check. For our $50.00, I could have bought groceries for several days. Don't plan to go back, neither one of us or my adult kids who tasted it and didn't think it was up to par.

      I have never been to Caveman Kitchens - too far away, but my son has, occasionally, brought some baked beans home to me.

      I have been halfway around the world and have never tasted better baked beans. Large chunks of bacon and the sauce is great.

      I just wish there was one of those restaurants here in Tacoma.

      My family has brought their fresh caught salmon to Caveman since the 70s! You can't beat Caveman's smoking... YUM. It's been many years since I've personally been there, but for anyone who has grown up in Western Washington and has many many generations of family in Western Washington we know this is truely a local staple.

      (All of you 21st century transplants not from Western Washington, go back home for your BBQ fixins, this place is for smokin'!)

      This place is a little rough around the edges but has all the fixin's for great eats! They make everything from scratch and by hand so this is some down home cookin'! I've read some unfavorable reviews about the sauce but I think its wonderful-Compliments the meat without taking over the flavor! Genius!!! And the price that you pay for what you get is awesome too! An 8" sandwich with 2 sides for under $12, find that at Quiznos! I know they've been around for some time (70's?!!) for good reason and I hope they're around for alot longer! Come one come all!

      We ordered 37.5 lbs of smoked turkey and ham for my husbands employees for Thanksgiving and it was fantastic! We kept our fingers crossed because if the meat wasn't good, there was going to be alot of people very angry with us. Didn't order any sides so I can't say what those taste like but the meat was great. Overall, excellent smokiness - extremely reasonable - will be ordering meat for Thanksgiving again next year.

      They catered a work party recently and most were not too impressed(especially those who eat and cook BBQ). The ribs were tender with lots of meat but their sauce was just....wrong. Didn't taste like BBQ sauce. Tasted more like ketchup with spices. Their Baked Beans were runny and lacked any real flavor, especially compared to other BBQ places like The Generals in Kent. The bright spots were their potato salad, which was pretty darn good, and their smoked chicken, which, while a little dry, was unbelievably flavorful and the leftovers made excellent sandwiches the next day. Overall, not worth the price, except for the chicken.

      I've been to the caveman twice for lunch in the past year becuase coworkers rave about how good it is. I got the beef sandwich and dragon wheels both times. Almost no meat on my sandwich, the little meat there was bland, the barbeque sauce is tasteless, and even though the dragon wheels are good - they are overpriced for the little food you get. I just don't understand how anyone can consider this a good barbeque place. Trust me, go somewhere else for lunch.

      This is a great local BBQ place that has been around (and well loved) for a long time. The prices are good and you can tell from how busy it is that they serve some great food. The staff is nice, and though it can be busy the wait is never too long. They also offer catering services.

      Cave Man has the best barbeque around. I have never tasted anything like it. They always seem to be packed, so it is a good idea to call ahead if you are taking your order to-go. There parking fills up on a busy day, but there is usually at least one spot open. The people that work there are very friendly for how busy they are. The decor is entertaining...they have different pictures and notes from some of the visitors. May I recommend the BBQ chicken sandwich. It is great! Don't forget to pick up some napkins, because it is messy, too!

      Just because it seems like you are in a third world country doesn't mean the restaurant is any good.

      This food here is terrible. I got the pork sandwich, and it was loads of bread with very little meat on it. And to top it off, the BBQ sauce was a glorified mustard sauce.
      And the price for all this? Don't get me started.

      This place has a good name, but everything else is terrible.
      Go to "The General's BBQ" if you need authentic BBQ in Kent.

      I used to live in Montgomery, Alabama, and comparing BBQ there to what is served at CMK reminds me of the *only* thing I miss about Alabama. There's just no comparison. While the pork cubes were tender with no chewy pieces of fat, the serving that came with the meal seemed a little sparse. My wife really liked the BBQ sauce, while I likended it more to something one would be served in a school cafeteria. The potato salad was fine, but heavy on the pickle. The beans were darn good, and I suggest, as others have, to try the dragon wheels. My kids thought the BBQ beef sandwhich was good, and they can be pretty picky. Don't bother ordering the chicken. I haven't tried the other menu items, but I think I'll go back again. If you ever find yourself in Alabama, try the Smokehouse restaraunt in Wetumpka.

      Caveman may not be the fanciest place to go, but it definitely tastes good. I really love their BBQ chicken sandwich. The BBQ pork sandwich is good, too. Besides ordering food from there, you can also bring in your own meat to have them
