Fandango Creek rises half a mile southeast of Escobas Ranch in eastern Zapata County (at 27°02' N, 98°59' W) and runs southwest for six miles to its mouth on Arroyo Carrizales, half a mile southwest of La Cabrada Tank (at 26°57' N, 99°03' W). The stream traverses terrain that varies from low-rolling hills and prairies to flat land with locally active dune blowout areas. Local soils include clay and sandy loams and sands that support grasses, some mesquite, and chaparral.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
