According to the Kern County Public Health Department, Tina's Diner in Maricopa was closed due to multiple health code violations.

Among the repeated violations were multiple openings in floors, walls, and ceilings, as well as the accumulation of furniture throughout the facility.

New violations noted by the health department include the lack of mop and hand wash sink in the facility, cleaning chemicals stored alongside clean utensils or food, excessive live plants both inside and outside the facility which could lead to environmental contamination, raw meats and ready to eat food stored on top of each other in freezer, drain overflow in floor in front food prep area near ice machine, and multiple refrigerators not National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)-approved.

The restaurant was ordered closed until the issues could be corrected.
