Tim Drake - hands down. Dick really didn't become an interesting character to me until he was in the Titans, and really it was after he became Nightwing that I think people felt comfortable developing him as something other than Batman Jr.

Jason started out as an uninteresting Dick Grayson clone and then unfortunately was ret-conned to have a really jerky personality. I never identified with Jason and never really liked him much. I wasn't terribly suprised when he was voted to death.

But Tim always interested me - from his first appearance on. He wasn't a Dick Grayson clone at all, he was a nice kid, and he was smart. When he showed up he was already a natural detective, and something about the whole mythic "apprentice seeking the master" vibe that came off of his desire to become Robin. Plus, I liked the fact that he had a stable home life and was fairly well adjusted - a novel idea in the Bat-family at the time.

As for Stephanie, I didn't read the issues she was Robin in, so I can't really comment. I always thought she'd make a great Batgirl, and I was disappointed when they passed her up for Cassandra instead.

Jason Todd steals the Batmobile's hubcaps, just totally kills a guy and bullshits Batman about it, and orders rum & cokes (semantic check: rums & cokes?).

Also, I think he's the only Robin to be written by Alan Moore, though I admit to having sat down to read The Killing Joke.

He's not the best Robin, especially for long-term things, but he's by far the most entertaining.
