DINNER CREEK (Uvalde County). Dinner Creek rises a half mile east of the Frio River and seven miles north of Knippa in east central Uvalde County (at 29°24' N, 99°38' W) and runs southeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on Blanco Creek, fifteen miles east of Uvalde (at 29°13' N, 99°32' W). Scrub brush and various grasses predominate in the creek's upper reaches and give way to pecan, other hardwoods, and various grasses in the lower. The stream rises in steep to gently sloping terrain and runs into terrain with low relief surfaces. The soils throughout the length of the creek are deep, loamy, and clayey.
