DIRTY DINING: Black Bear Diner In Oakley Reopens After ANOTHER Closure Due To Cockroach Infestation


Black Bear Diner, located at 3201 Main St. in Oakley, has reopened following another closure due to a cockroach infestation.

The restaurant was closed last week on May 25 after inspectors say they found the following:

  • Observed 1 live German cockroach inside the food storage room, 1 dead German cockroach inside the glue board under the cash register and another dead German cockroach under one counter in the waitress station.

The restaurant was previously closed in April due to a cockroach infestation.


It was inspected again on May 25 after a complaint was made on May 20 saying many cockroaches were spotted “running in the carpet.” The restaurant was closed on May 25 and allowed to reopen on May 26 after reinspection.

The facility does have a regular pest control company (Matrix Pest Eliminator) come out and service the restaurant. The restaurant had reports from April 10, 14, 17, 24, 27, and May 5, 10, 17, 24.

We used to have fun seeing who could count the most bears they can see from the table. I guess the health department was playing the same game in the kitchen and behind the counters with roaches.

Well, they’re going to be ready when Bill Gates introduces his Cocroach Happy Meals.

I had a patty melt there a couple weeks ago & it was great… tho I do recall it was kinda crunchy.

That’s a wrap for me and Black Bear….

If I am reading this correctly, then 3 cockroaches are considered a infestation?

Old Otis June 1, 2023 - 4:29 PM - 4:29 PM

You will eat zee bugs and like it!
Are we sure they weren’t on the menu?

Dr. Jellyfinger June 1, 2023 - 7:32 PM - 7:32 PM

3 roaches?…….That does seem really, really extreme… those bugs could’ve arrived just a few hours before with a produce delivery or something. I wonder if the health inspector is just poking around for a “gratuity” shall we say?

Contra Costa County is infested with American cockroaches, Asian cockroaches, and German cockroaches. 🪳 🪳 🪳 🪳 🪳 🪳 🪳 🪳 🪳 🪳

This may have been in Oakley, but Concord is infested with cockroaches and rats. 🐀 🐀 🐀 🐀 🐀 🐀 🐀 🐀 🐀 🐀 These populations have increases significantly since about 2015. Please, do your part in controlling these populations. Dirty and disgusting creatures.

On the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Alabama Drive in Concord is a house that’s owned by a filthy hoarder. He has a fence around it where you can’t see in but the entire backyard is just packed with garbage. You can see rats and bugs everywhere. When you drive up the street at night, there’s feral cats and owls that hang around the house because of all the vermin the city of Concord will not do anything about it and it’s directly across the street from an elementary school. There is a huge rat and cockroach problem in this area.

Forget the City of Concord. Complain to the County Health Dept.


Besides the illegal dumping/ garbage complaint category there is another for complaining about unlicensed food vendors (I can’t remember who it was but there was one Claycordian that was having kittens over that issue).

With all of the ivy growing around parts of Concord City Hall, they have their own rat 🐀 and cockroach 🪳 problems that they don’t take care of.

Here in Southest Asia roaches are considered lucky … and they also would collect them up and add a new horderve choice to the menu … lol
