In-N-Out, the gods that have brought us animal-style burgers, is suing a popular food delivery service to get them to stop slinging their burgers.

TMZ reports that the burger giant just filed a lawsuit against DoorDash in an effort to get the service to stop delivering their burgers, and they're also suing for damages. The suit says they're worried that they have no control over how DoorDash handles their food, something they take pride in. They also claim that DoorDash is using a fake In-N-Out logo on their website, despite them repeatedly telling them that they don't have permission to do so.

On a search this morning on the DoorDash website, we could not find In-N-Out on their list of restaurants in Los Angeles. However, it's still listed on DoorDash's list of Sherman Oaks restaurants.

We asked DoorDash for a comment about the lawsuit, and received this statement from a spokesperson: "DoorDash uses its innovative logistics technology to deliver the very best food and products in neighborhoods across the country. While we have various relationships with different merchants, we are proud to help people get their favorite food delivered directly to their door."

In other In-N-Out legal news, a Newport Beach man was sentenced on Monday to two years in federal prison for running a scheme where he cheated investors into believing that he would open In-N-Out franchises for them in the Middle East.

It looks like everyone wants a piece of In-N-Out. And if you want a juicy burger, you might have to just get off your couch and sit in the long drive-thru lines just like everyone else.
