CBC's Marketplace is going undercover in some of your favourite chains to reveal Canada's Restaurant Secrets.

The Marketplace team and their experts have pored over thousands of inspection reports from coffee shops, fast-food chains and family dining restaurants to see how they fared. They'll reveal which one came out on top this Friday, April 11 at 8/8:30 NT.

We invited members of the CBC audience to chat with us LIVE about their own restaurant concerns, thoughts and experiences Thursday. You can replay the full chat featuring Marketplace host Erica Johnson and restaurant inspection expert Jim Chan below.
