Hometown Proud– Our Very Own Jamie Law is on CBC!



The day I walked into Law & Orders on Highway 7 just outside of Carleton Place almost a year ago I knew what a gem we had in our community. And you know what? Jamie Law has never let his quality down once. Not only is his concept great, and his food fantastic, he is also a really nice nice guy. Now, that is what Simon Cowell would call a triple threat.

Having a business is all about taking action and not being lazy- and thinking outside of the box. Jamie has manged to do all of this, and when someone from CBC does a food revue on Law & Orders I am all over this. Success is not always about how much money you make, it’s also about the difference you make in people’s lives.

And that is what Jamie Law and his staff do every single day.

Well done Jamie– colour me proud as hell right now.

Law & Orders — A Little Slice of Heaven on The Side of the Road

From Kaladar to Carleton Place – The Spud Box is Open!



Halfway between Ottawa and Peterborough in Kaladar lies an urban legend. Rumour is their burgers were rated tops by the Globe & Mail, and people come from all over the world to taste their food. I have been hearing whispers about this for 6 months now, so today I finally got to see what all the buzz was about. The Spud Box has just opened on HWY 7 where the old Balderson Cheese store once stood and the place was hopping!

As I stood there waiting for my poutine with Ms Fiona Cornell — I was not only shocked by the quality of the food, but the quantity. An order of pulled pork poutine atop french fries and smothered with dark gravy could easily have been shared by two and still had leftovers. I saw many lost fries on the deck and wondered why. When I got my poutine it was over flowing and I had to struggle to keep them all in the dish. The Spud Box serves huge servings, so be prepared to split a large fries at least 2 ways. I haven’t seen a decent Philly Cheesesteak since The Philly Cheesesteak Shop in Berkeley and I saw a Philly Cheesesteak walk out the door that could rival my fave. I didn’t taste it but it looked great.


A woman struggled spraying vinegar on her fries that sat under thin battered fish. No frozen processed stuff here! Even the butter tarts are homemade– and they sell them in singles, 6 pcs, or 18 pcs. My butt did not need that poutine, but how can you do a review if you don’t try the food. Remember, this isn’t McDonalds, it’s not fast food. The Spud Box serves real food and takes a little more time. As the owner said, ‘we serve the best f^&%in burgers in town!  It’s worth the wait!

Law & Orders — A Little Slice of Heaven on The Side of the Road


Law and order exists in life for the purpose of establishing justice. Law & Orders on the fringe of Carleton Place exists for the purpose of feeding the masses quality food. Tucked on the Carleton Place side of the Innisville Bridge on Hwy 7 lies memories of what the iconic Mr. Norm once built. Anyone that dares to even open up a business in that spot is going to have to fill some mighty big shoes. After eating at Law & Orders I would say they not only filled it- they needed a bigger size!

After hearing the rumour that Jamie Law had a Harvard degree in Burgerology I decided to check it out. The burgers and fries were flying out the door when I went in there a few Saturdays ago, but I decided to really throw them a curve ball. Often the veggie/vegan burger gets overlooked. Nine out of ten it is some frozen Morningstar veggie burger thrown on the grill. Since they don’t cook any frozen meat patties, would this be any different? It wasn’t– the quality rocked the house as well as the fries. I was even served a Diet Coke in an old fashioned glass bottle.

The burgers and pizza are fresh (local butcher and no filler) and home made. Even the veggie burgers are hand made by a woman “up the line” that wants to open a vegetarian restaurant. The fries are hot, crisp. and fresh cut – none of that frozen bagged nonsense Jamie says.

I honestly don’t think a bag of frozen-anything would mess with Jamie Law. He is determined, focused, and thinks of every palette, as he also offers gluten free and vegan options.Once upon a time he was in banking and restaurant management. He began at the bottom of the grease pit and worked his way up. There is no doubt that Jamie is establishing his own roots with his creative choices. He has no fear in getting dirty to get the job done right for his restaurant.

Like the successful In-N-Out Burger chain in the US, Law & Orders is back to basics and doing it right. Pride and dedication go into the hand made foods available (grilled BLT, The Barnyard, the pizza’s and of course the fries that bring people back at least once a week!) Other notable menu items include: deep-fried pickles, chicken wings, and for the winter season, chili and soup. Don’t forget the WCF -What Came First burger (a chicken burger with a fried egg, bacon and cheese).

In his quest to get people to taste his food Jamie even delivered to the ice shacks on Mississippi Lake this winter. The snowmobiles were always lined up front to taste the best gravy in town on his popular Poutines and Poutine Pizza. Tater Tot Poutine is coming up on the menu as well as home made frozen lemonade, sausages, and funnel fries, for the summer customers. Plus, Jamie assures you there is consistency in his food no matter who is cooking.

If you have a big appetite don’t forget the Rhippo Challenge! When Jamie Law opened his restaurant in February 2014, he set out a challenge that he knew would make his Dad proud.The Rhippo Burger was named after Jamie’s late father’s nickname. The Rhippo Challenge includes two, one-pound Rhippo burgers and a full pound of Poutine. It only comes to those willing to test the depth of their hunger. All participants must completely consume the three items in 20 minutes or less. The successful few will earn bragging rights, get their meal for free, go home with a t-shirt, and their photo will be hung on the Rhippo Challenge Wall of Fame.

As of February 2015, over 90 challengers have attempted the feat. They have only had one winner. Bobby Roy from Metcalfe completed it in 13 minutes! Where are our Carleton Place challengers? C’mon guys!

Aside from the phenomenal food, and great selection on their menu, the staff are very personable, friendly, and helpful. Not only that, Law & Orders  are on a used cooking oil recycling program. If not properly treated, used cooking grease can pose a serious threat to the community. Using an environmentally responsible pick up and waste oil disposal service prevents thousands of tonnes of restaurant trap grease from clogging sewer systems, polluting waterways and contaminating landfills. Way to go guys!

Jamie will be competing with the other burger professionals at The Man Cave Show coming up in Carleton PlaceThe family run business is open 7 days a week from 11-7pm. You can call ahead and your order will be ready for you to eat in or take out when you arrive!  It’s right across the street from the Ultramar gas station in Innisville, and only ten minutes from Perth and Carleton Place! No matter who you are, you’ll feel like a part of the Law and Orders family when you leave.
