    The popular West Coast burger chain In-N-Out is suing a Maryland restaurant claiming its name, logo and menu is too close to its own.

    The Irvine, Calif.-based chain filed an infringement lawsuit this week in U.S. District Court in Baltimore. The chain claims customers could be led to believe that the Aberdeen, Md., burger joint Grab-N-Go is related to In-N-Out, and is seeking a permanent injunction and unspecified damages.

    The suit alleges that Grab-N-Go's name and color schemes mirror In-N-Out's signature style. In-N-Out also says that the "Wild Style Burger," with two beef patties, lettuce, tomato, pickle, grilled onions and "wild" sauce is too close to its proprietary "Animal Style" burger.

    Grab-N-Go's owners did not return calls from The Daily Record of Baltimore for comment.
