Texas style BBQ beef ribs, what are they?

So last week I went to a BBQ restaurant. One item on the menu was:

Texas style BBQ beef rib $32

I noticed the lack of "s" at the end of "rib", and the price (!!). It wasn't a fancy restaurant or anything.

What kind of beef rib is that? I love beef ribs and have been trying to grill them (I've never smoked anything in my life) to great success, and want to try some more, however the beef ribs I get are on the inexpensive side, and I can easily eat 2 or 3 of them in one sitting, so I can't imagine they're the same thing.

Any idea?

Short plate ribs are what I used to buy, 4 long ribs with about 2 inches of meat on top. Low and slow on the BBQ pit and you have some of the best eating beef there is off a smoker. They are expensive to buy and take a long time to cook and you need to get them just right, underdone they are chewy, overdone they dry out. Dinosaur bones, each was 4 inches long and had over a pound of meat on it. Leftovers made some of the best hash on the planet! I would simmer the bones for beef stock after trimming off the cooked meat,
