At the corner of Rue to Molinel and rue de Tournai, there's a basic restaurant that sells fries on the street (through their window), but they also have a restaurant that serves basic and quick meals before taking the train. Typical "bistro" Specialties and the staff is great. The place is packed at lunch with local going there on their lunch breaks, but much quieter at night. They homemade fries are some of the last remaining true good authentics you can find in Lille (a city formally known for their fries all around the tyrain stations)

To find the restaurant, Look for the McDonals in the Gare and exit by that door. You will be on Rue de Tournai. Cross the street and walk to your left, it's at the corner of the first street (Rue du Molinel) You can't miss it.

Depends what station you mean - Lille Flandres, or Lille Europe. There isn't a lot worthwhile near Lille Europe, but near Lille Flandres is A La Renaissance, a great restaurant with local dishes.

It's here: http://tinyurl.com/yj7y6kl

At least - it used to be there - details seem to be a bit sketchy as to whether the business stil survives
