How to search for text within a large number of files

There are more utilities than a Pentium 2 processor can count to accomplish this task, yet I find myself spending 30-40 minutes finding one that works well, and presents the results in a human-readable form.
The best utility I have come across is called Text Crawler. (FREEWARE)
