    Lawsuit claims Grubhub offers different prices on Website than the restaurant's internal menu.

    Grubhub.com prides itself in finding restaurants that deliver, but should customers pay extra for that service?

    That's the gist of a lawsuit filed against the Chicago company. According to Crain's, a law firm claims the website violates consumer-fraud statutes by charging higher prices for menu items without disclosing it.

    Grubhub offers a single web destination that allows customers to find restaurants that deliver by typing in their zip code or searching by cuisine, restaurant name or menu item.

    The suit revolves around a customer who claims he was charged a dollar more for fettucini alfredo from Pompei Pizza than he would have been charged on the restaurant's internal menu, Crain's reports.

    Grubhub wouldn't comment on the specific lawsuit but told Crain's, "there are instances where a restaurant may not have notified us of menu changes or updates."
