Tell me please if the following sentence is correct.

John asked me if I had something to eat and I told him that there were eggs.

Is it necessary to specify where those eggs are? For example:

There are eggs in the kitchen.

I wouldn't say your sentence is incorrect, and no, you don't need to specify the location of the eggs.

That said, some might agree that this version reads a little less awkwardly than your original:

John asked me if I had something to eat and I told him that we had eggs.
