In this week's Charleston Scene, writer Deidre Schipani takes a look at family restaurant The Mason Jar by Fatboys in West Ashley. While her review paints a picture of a quaint Southern diner, it's not until this paragraph that has us contemplating a visit:

Their poultry prowess produces fried chicken encased in a shaggy shell of flavored flours that defies physics as it attaches to the skin, keeps a layer of steam basting the bird and manages to crackle in your mouth, when its safe to take a bit. The chicken (you choose, white or dark meat) is all fried to order and brings a whole new meaning to "hot and juicy."

It sounds like there's another contender in the Lowcountry for best fried chicken.
