what do you mean by best?
top and mid lanes generally have heroes that are either strong early or late. in addition, a lot of the laning phase is determined by match-ups.

the heroes that jacobi mentioned are all very strong laners. there are maybe one or two heroes that counter them in lane. however, each has its own set of drawbacks (renekton falls off a lot, riven cannot tank, rumble must choose between being tanky or ap dmg. nid results in a poke comp team).

i feel the best all-around hero top is actually cho'gath. there is very little you can do in lane against a properly spec'ed cho'gath. in addition, his aoe cc's are very nice while his ult provides additional buff control

there is probably no single best but there are quite a few very good top laners- riven, gp, yorick, renekton, vlad, kennen, rumble are all very solid.

Sustainable tops that can escape ganks are #1 for sure.

It all depends on who your facing and who's on your team.

Some generally all round good solo tops at the moment:
Vlad, Kennen, Rumble, Gangplank, Riven, Shyvana, Kennen.

A lot of pros consider Vlad / Rumble to be the best all around (although I'm certain there are situations where others shine).
