Braised Short Ribs

So I'm sorry, I'm not that food aware but when someone says braised short ribs what should the consistency be? Are they fork tender? Should they be more like barbecue ribs where there's still some toothsome quality? I ordered braised short ribs from a restuarant this weekend and I really couldn't tell the difference between the ribs and say a pot roast. Is that right?
