I noticed the it's spelled wrong. For a small town, Prosser has some decent dining options. El Caporal is a nice family owned Mexican American eatery. Great food, great drinks, great staff. Get the Mole or the Chile Verde.

This place has been part of Prosser since I can remember. The food is great and the people are friendly. It can be busy so plan to dine on the off hours if you are in a hurry.

I use to really love coming to El Corporal when I was younger, however the restraint has seemed to change a whole lot. The food is okay, really nothing great or special for the price that you have to pay.

A pleasant Mexican food restaurant with some items on the menu that you do not normally find everywhere else. All of the items we ordered were very good and reasonably priced. Cocktails, beer and wine available. Ample seating. Pleasant service.

Went hungry, left stuffed - with great Mexican food. Great & fresh chips to start off with excellent salsa. Combo plates came out on platters, full. Oh yes, the big margaritas were a great addition. Totally enjoyed the place. Wasn't too busy but a rainy night in Prosser. Service was good & friendly. A nice experience.

Was not holding out great hopes for a Mexican restaurant in the little town of Prosser, Washington, but we were pleasantly surprised. The salsa, though heavily laced with chili powder, was very good. I had carne asada and it was perfect. My husband had tacos which were very good and he had leftovers to take home. It was a little... More
