Some of the city’s best Mexican food was once served out of a Beacon Hill gas station. Julie King, or “Momma King,” gained a huge cult following for her tamales, flautas and especially her grilled burritos. After the gas station closed in 2013, King secured a permanent space downtown from which to care for her devotees. No fish tacos or other Americanized dishes here, just the classics, all prepared in traditional Mexican fashion and made to order.
