This week on DineSafe: Bagel Brigade, Burger Hut, Dairy Queen, Legends, Original's, the Friendly Thai

Some of the things you learn when cruising (trolling?) through the DineSafe database: Toronto is home to an 8-11? It's kind of like McDowell's from Coming to America. Quick thought — if you were going to try to one-up 7-11, wouldn't it make more sense to go with 6-11 (that being an hour earlier on the opening hours the name gestures to)? Also, DineSafe inspectors are inclined to hit up multiple franchises in a given week. So congrats to KFC operators, who managed to keep it clean this time around.

To leave the preamble behind, we have ourselves a red card this week. The bagel brigade has behaved badly, and will now be sent back two steps as other armies advance ahead. The inspectors have, as they say, invaded.
