getting info from a Data Grid - which out of three methods is best?

Imagine you have a Data Grid with data (perhaps 30 - 50 lines).
Now, you want to find all lines where 3 certain columns match given values. Example: you want to find all lines where columnName "firstName" = "Trevor", "food" = "salad", and "meal" = "lunch".
1. scan the grid line by line, trying for a value match with data grid commands?
2. get the dgData and loop through the array?
3. get the dgText and loop through the tab delimited data?
(NOTE: We can't really depend on the "filter" command, since it's conceivable columns could change order or position in the future.)
Thanks in advance for any ideas!
