When asking questions about who does something, it's usual to use the third person singular form of the verb - so "who goes there" or "who does go there".

You would usually use the simple form unless you are wanting a contrast.

"Oh, I don't go there."
"Well, who does go there?"

There's a contrast here between the unknown person or people who go there, and the erson who already spoke who doesn't. If it's a question without such a contrast, stick to the simpler:

"Who goes there?"

Note that this is also a well-known saying used stereotypically by sentries to question someone approaching their guard-post. It's a bit of a cliché in that context, but it's fine in other situations where it's just asking a question, rather than challenging someone.
