Well, I have driven by this place numerous times, trying to find out what it is. As it turns out Route 46 is a new entertainment complex with restaurants, bars and late nite. They currently have 3 bars/restaurants open, 2 of them just opened recently:
- The Saloon at Route 46: Bar and Lounge, classy and elegant. Also offers dinner.
- Monroe’s at Route 46: Seafood and Steak restaurant that intends to take guests back on a journey to the early 20th century
- The Smokehouse at Route 46: Smoked meats and BBQ in a cozy cabin setting. This restaurant has been in this location already since February 2008!
- Coming Soon: Garage Bar at Route 46: Fun bar with vintage style car theme.
I was attracted by the Spanish hacienda style, really like this look. Last time I drove by, the complex was finally open (referring to their latest expansion)! I have to say I am pretty excited about this new entertainment hot spot (at least that’s what it promises to be…). So it won’t be long until I will check out what the restaurants and bars at Route 46 are all about and of course I will post my experience here 🙂
For those of you who drive on Highway 46 in Sanford a lot, I am sure you have seen this place, too. It’s on the left hand site, next to BJ’s Wholesale, after you pass Rinehard Street when going towards Historic Sanford (East). As the sign notes, there is no direct entry from highway 46, you need to take Elder Road.
