Link's Awakening is the best Zelda game without a doubt.
Best Music, Awesome Dungeons, Excellent Dialogue and it just had a certain feel to it, that appeals to me more than the other games.
Not to mention that it fitted on a single Gameboy Cartridge back in 1993. Now that's an amazing technichal feat.
I hastily posted this to the non-dx version board but I have to digess DX is EVEN BETTER than the original Link's Awakening. As amaeth put it, it does have the feel that the 3D games lack. It wasn't possible for me to get OoT when it first came out, and even though I bought a copy a few years back, I have repeatedly tried getting into it and failing. It's way too slow in the beginning, and a bit too convoluted for my tastes. I've loved all the handheld ones and LttP, but the 3D ones feel like ... "you had to be there" kind of experiences.
All the GB ones need a rerelease, STAT. In glorious 2D Minish Cap style, please. I'd buy 'em. Again.
I must say, after playing the relatively new (2001)OoS/OoA games for GBC, going back and playing LA:DX just doesn't feel as fun as it did growing up. Just immediately claiming that LA:DX is the best Zelda game ever made without any context to back it up doesn't exactly lend credibility to the OP.
